Three Ways to Support.


A donation to the Argus Museum supports the work that has to be done on behalf of the community to preserve and share local history.

The endowment fund for both the Argus Museum and WCHS were created to ensure the Society is able to care for the collections.

The donation button has a pull down menu where you can choose to make a contribution of any amount to the Argus Collection Endowment fund, Directly to the Museum, or in honor of our late donor Garry Staup.



As a non-profit organization we are always looking for motivated volunteers. If you think you could help out in any way, please download the volunteer form here.

Some of the opportunities include:

  • Photographing artifacts.
  • Light filing and sorting in the museum office.
  • Inventorying the collection.
  • In-person events.
  • Scanning documents.

You can either print the form and mail it to us or email your completed PDF to
