TCHS is a non-profit organization, funded through dues, donations, memorials, facility use fees, grants and fund raising activities. 

Having a large and active membership is the strength of any non-profit organization.  We welcome all new members and the perspectives and experiences they bring to our organization.

The historical society and museum are staffed by volunteers.  Membership has long supported the site, giving generously of their time and skills. 

Volunteers act as docents when the museum is open, keep the buildings and grounds maintained, prepare exhibits, plan special events, and perform all functions necessary to keep the museum running.  All of our school programs are staffed with volunteers. 

We welcome new members and new volunteers of all ages.  Volunteers certainly benefit an organization such as ours, but it is the volunteers reap the true rewards.
