Thank You to Our Volunteers!

We’re Celebrating Volunteer Appreciation Week!

We are so grateful for each and every one of our volunteers. Whether they’ve been with us for six months or more than 40 years, our passion and dedication to the Cosmosphere is what makes everything we do possible. Thank you so much to all our volunteers for their dedication! 

This week, we celebrated our volunteers at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast. During this time, those who have volunteered for 1, 5 and 10 years were presented with awards, recognizing them for their years of service. Jim Ewert, pictured to right, was presented with an award recognizing his 10 years of service to the Cosmosphere. Ewert, along with his wife Andrea, volunteers in a variety of roles. From serving as a docent giving guided tours to museum visitors to working with campers all summer on the Rocket Team.
