Cottonwood AZ (February 15, 2021) – Meet Diane Mueller, a Verde Historical Society board member and volunteer at the Clemenceau Heritage Museum in Cottonwood. Mueller has volunteered at the museum for about 22 years after retiring to the Verde Valley from Morengo, Illinois, following a career as a Special Education Teachers Aid. She currently serves as the volunteer coordinator for the museums greeter desk and gift shop sales personnel.
Diane is responsible for training and scheduling these hosts and hostesses in their positions, records and reports the number of hours they work and assists them as needed in the performance of their duties. She stated “although only two hours are required to volunteer, most come in from 2-4 hours a week.”
Mueller has served in many positions within the society. She also volunteers at Faith Lutheran Church and for the Lions Club. When asked what she enjoys most about volunteering at the museum’s greeter desk she replied: “I love meeting new people and finding out where they are from. Sometimes they are from Illinois and sometimes they are from other parts of the world. Our conversations are always enlightening and fun!”
