NATIONAL BONSAI & PENJING MUSEUM VOLUNTEERS
The National Bonsai & Penjing Museum would not be what it is now if it were not for the many volunteers who have worked in its collections year after year. While the Curator and the staff have day-to-day responsibilities for the Museum, it is the volunteers who provide all the little attentions that each tree in the collection needs in order to be healthy and beautiful. Many of these volunteers are members of the Potomac Bonsai Association, which has played a primary role in the development of the Museum. Of these many volunteers, one volunteer must be singled out: Janet Lanman who has worked at the Museum for the entire period of its existence from 1975 until now. She is the model for all Museum volunteers and thankfully there are many who follow her example.
