Oregon Heritage is thankful for young heritage stewards like these

Students from Siuslaw Elementary School cleaned and restored 25 headstones at the Deadwood Pioneer Cemetery. This project came from an idea for Siuslaw School District's Kindness Club. Our favorite quote comes from one of the students herself, "I think it's important because they could get forgotten if they're just covered in stuff and no one would know they are there".

Some tips on thanking those that work with, volunteer for, or donate to your organization


Some tips on how to show the people you work with, your volunteers, and your donors that you are thankful for what they do for the organization can be found here<http://nonprofitaf.com/2018/11/being-thankful-is-not-enough-here-are-21-tips-to-help-you-do-a-better-job-thanking-people/?fbclid=IwAR3P65T2kQrvPK8jSHIbJr3k9rrzHaw8EjNEM2pjkwMOZPsEFBQobqEl1XA>.



We have one more tip from Oregon Heritage's Sheri Stuart, Oregon Main Street Coordinator, who uses the "thank them in three ways" rule when it comes to volunteers (including board members). An example of this is thanking someone verbally, sending them a thank you note, and honoring them (along with others) in an appreciation event.



And finally...THANK YOU for all that you do to preserve, promote, and protect Oregon's heritage!
