    COLUMBIA, PA: The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) has named Lancaster County resident Sally Biel "Volunteer of the Year" for her generous contribution of time to the National Watch and Clock Museum and its Library and Research Center.

    "For nearly two years Sally has been coming in once a week to work on cataloging vertical files. Most people may not know Sally, because she works quietly in my office every Wednesday, but her work is having an enormous impact on the availability of information to NAWCC members, a key part of the Library's mission. In the time she's been working here, she has cataloged almost 700 files," shares Library and Archives Supervisor Sara Dockery.

    "Sally has taken it upon herself to learn a tremendous amount about horology, keeping careful notes about each type of clock and watch she encounters in her work. Thanks to the work that she is doing, members are able to easily find library resources and a project that has been ongoing for well over the five years I've been here is nearing completion," adds Dockery.

    Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Watch and Clock Museum and the Library and Research Center. Dozens of volunteers donated thousands of hours, contributing significantly to the achievement of the NAWCC's mission—a huge savings for the Association. These dedicated individuals provide much of the manpower needed for daily operations, programs, special projects, and events. From event planning to education aides to exhibit construction, to archival research, volunteers get involved at various levels that fit the individuals' time and commitment availability. If you have extra time on your hands and are interested in volunteering, please call Museum Director Noel Poirier at 717.684.8261, ext. 236 to request an application. The application is also available on the Museum's website at
