Fort Snelling Special Event Volunteers
The Minnesota Historical Society’s (MNHS) Special Events volunteer team contributes thousands of hours each year to help support special events and public programming at the Minnesota History Center, Historic Fort Snelling, the Alexander Ramsey House, Mill City Museum, and multiple off-site locations.
Historic Fort Snelling special event volunteers have contributed more than 250 hours since January 2017. Volunteers have helped assist at events like Memorial Day Weekend, July 4 Celebration, World War I Weekend, History on the Go Bus Tours, and CSI Fort Snelling, to name a few. Staff supervisor Tom Lalim said “There's no way we could do what we do without the help of volunteers.”
Thank you to all volunteers who contribute their time, talents, and efforts to make events at Historic Fort Snelling a success!
