Event set-up

*Our Museum Director has expressed a wish for someone to help him with the many Museum Director duties: organizing, planning and so on. This is a volunteer position. If interested, please contact our Museum Coordinator.

All volunteers are welcome for an hour, a day or the duration of a long term project.

We also welcome students in need of intern or volunteer hours.

Stop by the house any day we have a planned ‘Clean Up Day’.
