Volunteering not only helps the Society, but benefits you, too.  Besides filling what seems to be a basic human need, you can learn a lot about the O&W and railroading, develop skills, expand friendships, and get a true feeling of accomplishment.

We realize that the key to making volunteering a pleasurable and rewarding experience is good project planning, and having the materials and tools available, so we strive (and usually succeed) to make complete preparations for the jobs to be done.

Many people don't realize just how rewarding volunteering can be.  There is a great way to find out.  As Woody Allen once said "Eighty percent of success is showing up".
