Volunteer positions for those who are interested.
 
  • The members of the Board will start again to meet monthly to plan events and share information.  They are public meetings so if you would like to be involved, feel free to attend.  We do social distance and wear masks and will be meeting in the Floyd where there is more room for spacing everyone.
  • Docents – Docents are volunteers entrusted with opening and closing our museum during our open hours.  We welcome new and continuing members to visit and shadow those who are here on either Wed or Fridays to learn a few basics.  Docents often learn about other ways to contribute and connect with the community and that advocacy and support help is an ongoing need in all museums.  Interest is the only qualification, bring your own local expertise and experience, share and learn with all of us. Although we are technically not yet open, we anticipate being open by appointment very soon.
  • Events Helpers – Though there are only a few events this year, we need help opening and closing and greeting visitors on these days.  This is another role for our docents.
  • Exhibits are changed every year or so – at that time we welcome those with subject specialties to come to our meetings and help. Visit our current exhibits and think about helping next time.
  • Collections helpers – current volunteers are training new helpers who have been documenting, sorting, organizing, labeling donations of artifacts, antiques, photographs, documents and other types of historical materials that will be held in our collections for research and interpretive purposes.
  • Interviewers for oral History interviews and other types of information gathering projects including historic sites, historic preservation projects.
