Pioneer Town in Cedaredge has chosen Linda Pierce as Volunteer of the Month of June.

Pioneer Town is the Historical Society's museum praised by many as one of the best museums in the area. Linda Pierce has volunteered there for just over two years, having been recruited by long time Pioneer Town supporter, Robin Rogers.

Pierce has lived in Cedaredge for 16 years and has worked for the local school district as well as for the USGS. She said she came to Pioneer Town because of her love of history and stays because she loves the people.

"Anyone who likes people would love to work here," she said. She enjoys meeting the public and working with the volunteers and on her off days she enjoys checking out the surrounding towns for anything that might be of historical value to the museum.
