Support for Our Volunteers

‘The volunteer group is always unbelievable!’
‘The volunteers were outstanding.’

Volunteers are the main reason the Birkie exists. Many people return each year to the Birkie because they have fun and meet new friends. Each volunteer receives a gift as a small token of our appreciation. We love our volunteers!
