Letter: CREHST volunteers educate youth and more

February 12, 2014 

It is said that when a door closes, another one opens.

We are so thankful for all of the volunteers who have worked tirelessly over the years in various capacities in the Columbia River Exhibition of History, Science and Technology.

Many have shared their extensive knowledge with the public at the front desk answering questions and providing tours. Our wonderful volunteers have assisted with the many details needed to put together our large and small fundraisers -- we couldn't have done it without them!

Our "Education on Wheels" program travels to schools and science fairs, presenting programs on a variety of science and history subjects. Again, volunteers help. Some wear costumes and portray scientists Aristotle, Galileo and Sir Isaac Newton.

Though CREHST is now closed, our educational outreach program is still available and we will be transitioning to the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center when it opens in July.

We can't thank our volunteers enough for the thousands of hours spent over the years enriching the lives of children and adults in the Columbia Basin and beyond.
