Here are volunteer possibilites you might be interested in.  Contact us for more information.

EDUCATIONAL KIDS PROGRAMMING

TOUR GUIDING:
For people with an interest in history who enjoy meeting others and sharing time with them, guiding in the Old Jail Museum and the Old Coldspring Townsite area provides an essential service for the Heritage Society. We provide training and orientation, as well as a variety of guiding options, from public tours, to school groups. Commit a few hours each week or every other week.

DATA ENTRY:
The Society is gradually computerizing its catalogue of collections, as well as other items. We have a real need for people who are willing to add information to our databases, either by typing at home, or by coming in to the Society to type.

COLLECTIONS PROCESSING:
This is a job for a detail person who likes to work with objects. Each artifact entering the Society's collection needs to be catalogued and marked with a number.

RESEARCH:
Do you have a knack for digging into history? We need people to answer research requests from our members and others in the public. This work involves working with the Society's documentary and research collections, as well as local libraries, and writing up findings.

EVENT STAFF:
If your interest lies in sporadic work, why not consider helping out at events, such as "Heritage Days"? We need help with program planning, and with people at the event itself, manning the information desk or providing other forms of assistance. 

HISTORIC HOUSEKEEPING:
We need careful people to help us care for our historic buildings. Historic Housekeeping involves a special set of skills in order to provide care for our buildings without damaging them by overcleaning or using the wrong cleaning materials. 

HANDY-PERSON WORK:
We need people to carry out small painting projects and general repairs, construction of exhibit furniture and more. If you enjoy working with tools or with buildings, this might be your type of work! 

Please give us some idea of the area of volunteer work you are most interested in and of any special skills you have that you think would be useful to us.
