Business of the Year
David Johnson / 376Tech
In 2017, David joined with Lisa Steckley to form 376Tech, a computer service company “of islanders for islanders”. David’s experience with computers spans many years, along with his desire to help non-profits. 376Tech comes to our rescue time and time again!
The garden has been thriving at the museum since Mary started volunteering in Fall of 2021. She was helping sell raffle tickets when Many was asked about her other interests and where she might volunteer. Mary enthusiastically replied, “I'd love to work in the garden!”
BE A GARDENER
Help maintain our front garden.
BE A DOCENT
Friendly people who donate a few hours a week to greet museum visitors. No prior experience necessary.
Visiting the museum you will be dazed and amazed at Irene’s knowledge and memory for people and events related to Orcas Island. If you are a descendant of a pioneer family, she will likely know your relative of long ago…maybe point out your great-great grandparents in an old photograph in one of the cabins.
Volunteer of the Year
Love old photographs and interesting artifacts?
Help the museum document and sort items into our collection.

BE A WRITER
Work on Newsletters and/or write "History Nook" columns.
The very generous help of our island friends is what keeps the Museum in Eastsound and the Crow Valley School Museum open and functioning. We always need a few extra hands for specific events, so if you’d rather not be an ‘official’ volunteer but would like to pitch in for a specific event, simply tell us how you’d like to participate.
We truly appreciate your contribution, no matter what it is or how it comes our way.
