My Number One volunteer is Ron M., whom by now most regular readers of this blog will be well acquainted. Ron does everything for me and there is no way I could run Afton Station without him. He fetches my wheelchair, puts out the flags, opens up the showrooms, cleans, cheerfully greets visitors, and keeps me sane. He is with me every single day at the Station and often his ideas of how to display merchandise or publicize the museum are welcome and sensible.
Robin is a real worker bee! She is willing to do just about anything I ask of her, including restocking the soda pop and paper products in her free time and working almost every day I request. In addition, she is now making a line of beautiful jewelry out of the pennies from our squashed penny machine (with added beads and bling) which she sells at the Station. She has lived in Afton all her life, so she can answer just about every question concerning local directions and other matters.
Betty W. is in a class by herself. She is always ready to help in any way she can, and she is a self-starter. She doesn't need to be asked before she springs into action when needed. She is always smiling and friendly to the visitors. Everyone in town loves Betty since she owned the famous Dairy Ranch for 41 years and served burgers and limeade to every Afton citizen. Additionally, she brings us some incredible home-baked goodies!
