OQUOSSOC — The Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum building and grounds received some significant improvements and maintenance in preparation for upcoming summer season May 20-22. A mix of local volunteers and employees of M&H Logging and Construction combined to provide significant enhancements to the museum’s facilities.

M&H donated materials and labor to grade and apply a fresh layer of crushed shale to the museum’s parking area. The crew also created a new handicapped parking area in preparation for the museum’s soon-to-be completed handicapped access ramp.

The interior of the museum also benefited from a thorough spring cleaning and organizational effort by local volunteers Barbara and Bob Mahoney who donated over 40 hours each during the busy week.

“Local volunteer support is crucial for us to have any success at all,” said Bill Pierce, OSHM executive director.

Nine volunteers from Timberland’s corporate offices in Stratham, NH also participated.

“This museum is doing a great job of sharing the region’s rich outdoor heritage. Timberland recognizes the importance of what that means to this community and to the visitors who come here. There’s nothing like getting outside with your co-workers to help out a nonprofit like OSHM. It’s a good time and it is very rewarding to make a visible difference through our service,” said Ken Beaulieu, Timberland executive.
