  • Education Programs: Assist with children’s’ programs
  • Events: Volunteers are needed for the Cemetery Walk, special events, and the program committee.
  • Collections: Assist in cataloging items in the Museum’s collections
  • Board of Directors: Serve on the Museum’s Board of Directors; positions are also available on other Society committees.
