Antique Powerland Museum (APMA) is unique in the fact that the entire facility is operated and maintained by loyal, dedicated volunteers. Mowing, pruning, plowing, planting, repairing, painting, planning, and building is not contracted out, with a few exceptions. Each of the museums at Powerland is an independent partner.
The Great Oregon Steam-Up would not be possible if not for the time and energy provided by our many volunteers, including those with our museum partners. In addition, we have our wonderful exhibitors who drive many miles to bring their restored equipment and collections to display. They are all big contributors to our Steam-Up show and, combined, we have over 700 volunteers who work together to make Steam-Up happen. We do it all for you: our visitors. Seeing you smile and enjoying yourselves is our greatest reward. THANK YOU!
The Antique Powerland Museum Association and all the Museum Partners are membership non-profit corporations. Members not only help support the museums, but they also elect the Boards of Directors and set major policy. So by becoming a member you will be an important part of the future success of Powerland.
The big volunteer day at Powerland is Wednesday. There’s always a coffee pot going and plenty of new friends to meet. Every Wednesday, from May through the middle of August, a free lunch is served for our volunteers by a group of volunteers, compliments of APMA. Antique Powerland and its Museum Partners are all volunteer organizations. All activities of management, administration, maintenance, hosting, restorations, construction, and landscaping are staffed by volunteers. The Great Oregon Steam-Up involves over 700 volunteers! Volunteers have a diversity of projects and other contributions to select ifriom. Some of the activities present significant learning experiences.
We welcome and appreciate your contributions of time, talent and financial support.
