Dennis is a snowbird Texan and donates his time to The Bryan Museum when he escapes the cold of Maine's long winters. In March, Dennis not only volunteered his time assisting guests, but he also donated some at-home time helping to develop procedures that will help to evolve our volunteer program. Thank you, Dennis! If you are lucky enough to find Dennis volunteering while you are visiting the Museum, be sure to thank him for his hard work, time, and dedication.
