Museum Gift Shop Seeks Volunteer

To join the volunteer team or for more information, please email
Summertime brings more visitors to the Museum Gift Shop! Currently, we are seeking a volunteer or two to help out on Saturdays in June, July & August. Past Museum Gift Shop volunteers have “worked” 10am-3pm or 11am-3pm.
If you enjoy interacting with customers and the idea of using a cash register or credit card machine doesn’t send you running to the hills, perhaps you would consider volunteering? We realize that Summer Saturdays can be a busy time, that’s why we are hoping another person may be interested. Spending 2 Saturdays a month in the Museum Gift Shop is a terrific way to support the society. (And when it isn’t busy you can catch up on your reading, knitting or what not.)
