American Gothic House celebrates volunteers

Ottumwa Courier

---- — ELDON — The American Gothic House Center hosted over 15,000 visitors last year from across the United States and around the world. The Center could not undertake this feat without the help of its volunteer staff.

The Center will host a volunteer appreciation potluck to recognize these volunteers. The potluck will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. Sept. 28 at the American Gothic House Center. This year’s theme is “Volunteers are an essential piece of our museum," and gifts and door prizes will relate to the theme.

The Center invites all volunteers and their families to attend the event. Those who are interested in volunteering are also invited to attend to learn more about volunteer opportunities and to meet other volunteers.

Please bring a dish to share and RSVP to Holly Berg, administrator, by calling 641-652-3352 or by emailing
