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!
May 2021 - Jory & Adlai Hullin
Our May 2021 Spotlight Volunteers are Jory and Adlai Hullin. The boys, ages 11 and 9, have been showing up at Museum events with their mom, Education Program Developer Angie Hullin, since they were infants. Just a few years later as preschoolers, they started finding ways to “help” out: setting up for education programs, decorating the Taylor House and hiding scavenger hunt items for Holiday Memories, transporting the Garton Toys from storage to the riding corral, and of course, adding glitter to everything in the Holiday Memories animation exhibits. One year they even helped Museum staff prune the selection of decorative gift boxes to make more room in storage–not many kids can say they got to open 100 presents over their winter break (never mind that the presents were empty boxes!) During the pandemic, Jory and Adlai continued to volunteer by helping produce educational videos for the public in the 2020 series Children’s Fireside Storytime Chat as well as several Reminiscing with Recipes videos. Mom and the rest of the education staff also recruited their help to demonstrate hands-on activities for videos used in the Museum’s new virtual education programs, and the boys continue to help assemble activity kits for those programs.
When asked why they volunteer with the Museum, the boys responded in unison, “Because Mom makes us!” Jory added, “But really, it’s fun.” Adlai chimed in, “And it makes things more interesting for everybody. The Museum makes history more interesting.”
