Ok, I volunteer for a Railroad Historical Society as their Archivist and an at-large member of the Board of Directors.
We've had a pile of bad news health-wise lately:
A director had surgery to remove cancer
A director's wife passed away
A volunteer had to go to the hospital for low blood pressure
A volunteer had a heart attack AND got pneumonia
This has been one hit after another, I feel like I'm on M*A*S*H.
I think part of this is the fact that most of our members are on the north side of 50. We need new blood. So, gentle readers I'm soliciting your opinions for what can be done to get younger people in a Railroad Historical Society?
