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!
Lakeshore Garden Club
Our November Spotlight Volunteer is the Lake Shore Garden Club. Members of Lake Shore have been volunteering at the Museum for over 30 years, assisting with a variety of decorating and landscaping projects at the Museum. Since the debut of our holiday exhibits in the early 1990s, Lake Shore has been one of the Garden Clubs to come bedeck the Taylor House and they even come back in January to help pack it all away! The group also contributes the plants and labor for the pots that adorn the historic buildings during the summer.
When asked why they volunteer, Lake Shore Garden Club president Doris Weber said, “We volunteer because we all feel to keep the Sheboygan County Museum alive is a need for our community and future for our youth. While some of our members volunteer at other events at the museum, our favorite which brings most members together is decorating the Taylor House. Each one of us has fond memories of visiting this place in the past. This gem in our community full of past memories needs to be kept going and Lake Shore Garden Club will always play a part.”
