The dedicated volunteers are the thrust behind what it takes to keep the Heritage Acres Farm Museum active in the preservation, displaying and demonstration of the antique farm and ranch equipment. Volunteers meet once a week on Thursdays to complete many of the tasks that are associated with the operation of the self-guided tour of the facilities. At their individual convenience, volunteers that have taken on individual restoration projects, will often spend many hours during the week working on their own tasks.
There are many different disciplines involved in maintaining the Heritage Acres Farm Museum and any individual that may have an interest in becoming an active volunteer is welcome to join the group each Thursday at the Museum work shop. Help is always needed with restoration work on old tractors, stationary engines, buildings, and set-up for the different functions that are held throughout the year. Maintenance tasks involving electrical skills, carpentry skills, welding skills, plumbing skills, gardening, painting, data collection, book keeping and assisting with guided tours throughout the facilities are completed by volunteers and members of the Oldman River Antique Farm Equipment Club.
