165 Boxes and 132 Doughnuts

165 Boxes and 132 Doughnuts

Our State Archives Volunteers celebrated their accomplishment of processing 165 boxes in 11 months, and eating 132 doughnuts, too!

These volunteers were responsible for unfolding and flattening materials from files and records, putting materials into new folders, and organizing and labeling materials in boxes.

Some members of this group have been processing these records for 17 years! The original group was from HB Fuller and Excel Energy, formerly NSP. Additional individual volunteers have been added to this group throughout the years.
