Volunteering at the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum has been an enriching and rewarding experience for me. I've always had a passion for history and being able to share that passion with visitors has brought immense joy to my life. The camaraderie among the staff and volunteers is remarkable. We are more than just a team, we're a family. Plus, the chance to meet people from all walks of life and learn from their experiences is an added bonus. I encourage anyone who loves history, enjoys interacting with people, and wants to give back to the community to consider volunteering at DLCM. You will not only help preserve our rich heritage, but also inspire future generations to do the same.
