Our Volunteers are Stars

By: Rebekah Bjork | April 19, 2019

Earlier last week, a group of 3M employees from their Native American network volunteered their time for MNHS. They put together 2,000 bandolier bags in just 30 minutes! These bags will be mailed out to teachers across the country.

They also painted lettering on 70 stars that will be used for the First Avenue Exhibit opening. The Women's Organization of MNHS finished painting the stars yesterday! One of our long-time volunteers, Skip, cut and whitewashed the stars himself.

Thank you, 3M employees and Skip!
