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!
June 2021 - Mary Meyer
Our June 2021 volunteer is Mary Meyer of Plymouth. It is always exciting when new volunteers join the mix, and while she has only been volunteering for a little over two months, Mary has jumped right in with both feet. She has become a regular at the Front Desk for the Museum and was one of several volunteers who helped out with our kick-off event for The Seven Wonders of Sheboygan County VAMONDE tour. She is also planning to help out over the summer with several of our other upcoming events, including the Outdoor Movie Nights and August’s Pioneer Olympics. Mary’s love of local history and people, coupled with her desire to help out in the community brought her to the Museum, and we are glad it did.
When asked why she chose the Museum as a place to volunteer, Mary replied “Some of my other volunteering opportunities stopped because of the Covid pandemic. Since I love to volunteer, and I love history, helping at the Museum seemed like a good fit. I have enjoyed visiting the museum in the past, and have attended various programs, including educational days with my grandchildren. Both the staff and other volunteers have made me feel welcome and very much at home.”
