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!
April 2021 - Bernie Chisholm
Our April 2021 Spotlight Volunteer is Bernie Chisholm. For those familiar with the Museum staff, Chisholm is probably a bit familiar, as our Education Supply Manager Nathan has the same last name. Which makes sense when you know that this is Nathan’s grandma! Many of the staff have family that help out “behind the scenes,” including Bernie, who along with her late husband Mark, started volunteering in recent years after Nathan joined the staff. Today, Bernie is a regular when we need help with stuffing mailings, creating Education Program hands-on items, or making Make & Take kits for Holiday Memories and more! She is even working on a special Bruce the Spruce project!
When asked why she volunteers, Bernie replied “It was something that Mark and I could do together and we enjoyed being able to help out and contribute to the museum. I enjoy being able to continue to help the museum and it helps me keep the memory of Mark alive.”
