KMUD honors its volunteers Featured

We love volunteers!

KMUD has been relying on volunteers for most of its programs, and for much of the operation for its over 27 year history. On January 17, KMUD held its annual Volunteer Appreciation and Celebration Party at

the Veterans Memorial Building in Garberville. Supporters of the nonprofit radio station had received ballots in the mail to vote for their favorite shows and programmers, and a team of volunteers, including board members, tallied up the votes.

Station Manager Jeanette Todd and volunteer cook Teri McCall McKenzie prepared a great meal with help from friends and family. Many thanks to April Moore’s Ranch Party for the wonderful harmonies and great country music!
