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!
July 2020 - Andrea Janey
Our July 2020 Spotlight Volunteer is Andrea Janey. Andrea first volunteered at the Museum in 2018 as part of the United Way’s Day of Caring. Despite having to tie knots in hundreds of pieces of leather for jingle bracelets, she came back. She has become a regular volunteer, helping out at the Front Desk at least one Saturday per month and hosting the Taylor House nearly every weekend during Holiday Memories. She also regularly participates in the various programs of the Museum, whether as a volunteer or an attendee. This past Holiday Memories, Andrea even offered to help bake the frozen cookie dough donated by Johnston’s Bakery, making quick work of over 90 dozen cookies (baked and back to the Museum in less than 24 hours)!
When asked why she volunteers at the Museum, Andrea said “I’m a history nerd at heart! I love sharing my knowledge of the area with out of town visitors, and sharing little known facts to local visitors, whether at the museum or special events! I also love being able to spend Holiday Memories in the Taylor House! Who wouldn’t want to spend the day surrounded by Christmas lights, listening to Christmas music, and being able to share a little Christmas magic with big and little kids for a few hours?!”
