The Volunteer Program at the Archway started in October, 2002 with three women. It has since grown to over 40 volunteers, both men and women, including a number of married couples, college students and high school students. Most of the volunteers are retired. Ronnie O’Brien, supervisor of the Archway “Show”, recruited the first volunteers by speaking at meetings of service clubs in Kearney and through informational sessions which were advertised in the newspaper. Since that time many new volunteers have joined the group after visiting with current participants in the program.
Volunteers are active in a number of capacities at the Archway. Some help with mailings and faxing information or in ticket sales while most help with ticket scanners and in the headset/guest book area. Volunteers are also active participants with the scout programs and the school education program, and during the March and April Sandhill Crane migration, many volunteers act as guides for tours.
