  • I can be a museum host (3 hours on a Saturday or Sunday, Once a month – that’s all.)
  • I can help coordinate volunteers for hosting. (30 Minutes a month, if that…….Probably less.)
  • I can call for volunteers for special events: The Christmas Tea, Picnic in the summer/fall, special Floed-Lane museum tours. (1-2 hours as needed. 2-3 times a year . This is your bag if you like talking to people.)
  • I can help keep the museum clean. (Work parties 3-4 hours, once or twice a year – A really good way to get to know your museum.)
  • I can help setup museum displays. (2-3 hours as needed, maybe 2-3 times a year, This is fun!)
  • I can help with special projects. (This includes cataloging, archiving items, doing inventory, researching requests for information…(we call it acceptable gossip!) and lots of other fun tasks.)
  • I can help with small maintenance projects in the museum. (1-2 hours as needed – Handymen and women wanted.)
  • I can help with the newsletter. Submitting stories, helping prepare for mailings, etc. (2-3 hours once a month – We love the newsletter.)
  • I value my Museum. I will work on projects to increase its visibility in the community, i.e. website updating, brochures, etc. ( 1-2 hours as needed – We’ll call you.)
  • And now the Biggie: Yes, I can serve on the DCHS Board !  It sounds like fun and will provide me with an opportunity to give something back to my community. (Time involved is your call.)
