Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed for our current Collection/Data Inventory project.  We have put in a new shelving unit to hold our inventory in our History Research Center and now we are doing a physical inventory to locate and reorganize all of our items. This project requires individuals with inquisitive minds and a can do spirit. If you are interested in history or getting to know some great people, come on out and volunteer.  We can also use volunteers as docents in our museum and researchers, organizers and maintenance of our History Research Center items.  Check out our Volunteers page for more information.
