As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, Bethel Woods relies on the generosity of volunteers who give their time, talent, and attention to our organization every year. We are so grateful for their contributions as they are a huge part of what makes our organization so special.
In honor of Volunteer Appreciation Week, learn a little bit about some of our volunteers, their interpretation of Woodstock, and how you can get involved!
Meet Christine Baker, who has been a volunteer at Bethel Woods for nine years!
What keeps you inspired?
"What keeps me inspired here is seeing people enjoy it. They really do have a good time when they come here, so I have a good time watching them experience it."
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
What does Woodstock mean to you?
“It says a lot; it’s history, it’s what’s possible, people can get together without any thought of gain for themselves and just have fun and have a good time.”
What do you think we can do to live with more peace in our lives?
“Once again, if you think first, if you try to think about what you’re doing or saying and how it’s going to affect whoever you’re facing, I think that would go a long way.”
