People in your neighborhood - Charles Ross helping to preserve history

KBPV volunteer Charles Ross
Toni Lucas

Charles Ross has been volunteering at the Pincher Creek and District Historical Society at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village in Pincher Creek for the last year and a half.  He makes his living as a handyman doing odd jobs and has been using his skills on the museum grounds.  "I do odd jobs, all over the place,"  said Ross.  "They are going to be moving it into the basement of the Turcott building," he said about the wood working area that will be a work area for staff and volunteers.

Ross has been assisting with upkeep of the historic buildings on the museum grounds.  "My sisters started volunteering, so I started," he explained.  His sisters Ruby and Esther started helping out during  the KBPV Workday Wednesday volunteer program, where anyone is welcome to come and help with projects on the grounds during the working hours of the museum on Wednesdays.  "I like it."
