Do you have a few hours to spare one day per week, or per month? Do you like to meet people? Maybe you can only spare a few hours on an irregular basis. Then why not volunteer that time with us at Sheboygan County Historical Museum.
We need volunteers to:
- Work with children in our full day student programs.
- Prepare materials for the full day student programs.
- Work in the Museum Store on Saturdays during the season and for special events.
- Do data entry on the computer.
- Help with collection cataloging.
- Be a gallery host during special events.
- Do outside clean up work.
- Help with any number of miscellaneous projects.
As a volunteer you meet and work with other volunteers and staff to educate people about Sheboygan County’s history. No experience or knowledge is necessary, we’ll help you learn everything you need to know.
If you would like to be a part of our exciting programs and events or would like more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Executive Director Travis Gross at the Museum (920) 458-1103.
Thank you for taking the time to help!
Jerry Konz is our June Volunteer of the Month. Jerry first came to the Museum as the “maintenance guy” in 1992 and stayed on staff as a part-time employee until 2004. He was also a regular at History Adventure Weekend, reenacting as Pyro-Bullfrog from 2002 to 2006. After retiring from his full time job, Jerry began volunteering with the Full Day Student Education programs. It is a rare day that Jerry is not greeting the visiting school kids as they settle in for the day. Throughout the years, he has always lent a hand with many of the other activities, including the Fish Boil, frying brats for various occasions and helping with painting projects. When asked why he volunteers, Jerry’s first response was “Never gave it much thought except maybe we love our job!!” He went on to add “It’s fun working with the kids especially when their eyes brighten up with some new found knowledge. Besides, it keeps me out of the wife’s hair. :)”
