Thank You to our Volunteers!

Today was fantastic! I know this isn’t my normal shift week, but this evening, I joined my friends and colleagues at the Volunteer Appreciation Party. Every year, we throw a party for our wonderful volunteers who so selflessly sacrifice their time and energy to help out the Observatory, both in the valley at the Weather Discovery Center and on the summit. After dinner at the Auto Road Lodge, everyone traveled up to the summit to enjoy the sunset.

To all of our current volunteers as well as our past volunteers, both summit and valley, we appreciate all of your hard work and effort! I know I speak on behalf of the entire organization when I say that we cannot thank you enough. For those who could not attend this event, thank you, and we hope to see you in the near future!

If you are interested in helping out the Mount Washington Observatory, please don’t hesitate to check out our Volunteer page on our website for more information.
