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!
Ivy League Garden Club
Our October Spotlight Volunteer is the Ivy League Garden Club. Members of Ivy League have been volunteering at the Museum since the early 1980s, assisting with a variety of decorating and landscaping projects at the Museum. From the early years of our annual Christmas time exhibit, Ivy League has been one of the Garden Clubs to come bedeck the Taylor House. Not only do they help to put the décor up, they are wonderful enough to come back in January and help pack it all away! Ivy League is also responsible for helping us to maintain the plantings around the Museum’s Flag Pole. Through the years they have also contributed generously to ensure that Museum has the needed foliage. When asked why they volunteer, Ivy League President Lynnette Rakun said, “Ivy League Club Members love coming to Taylor House to help with the Christmas decorating – it’s a great way to kick off the Holiday Season. The transformation of the bare unlighted trees to the fully decorated works of art they become is a delight every year.”
