Meet our Volunteers

Our organization is operated almost entirely by our volunteer staff, and we are so appreciative and thankful! Their incredible dedication, time, and talents to preserve and promote the history of Derry Township and Hershey deserves our recognition. 

In this photo alone there are over 193 years of collective years of volunteer service to the Historical Society.
