Short on funds but still want to help?
The museum is always looking for volunteers! Here are some suggestions:
• Be a docent for the museum. Help keep the museum stay open by donating your time, three hours once or twice a month on Tuesdays or Saturdays.
• Help us compute. We have a lot of material that needs to be scanned and registered into our system. Share your computer skills and help us digitize our artifacts!
• Sort and categorize. The museum has hundreds of volumes of items, photographs, and records that need to be identified and sorted. Are you good at recognizing old buildings and people of the Key Peninsula? Give us a call.
• Are you handy, can you help us clean up? The museum needs assistance with some carpentry and other maintenance projects. The old Vaughn Library Hall is currently undergoing a major cleanup effort and restoration, we could always use volunteers to help with trash collection, artifact sorting, and building maintenance.
• Do you live in Horseshoe Lake? We currently lack board representation from that area. Email us or call (253) 884-2511 / (253) 884-5403 to find out more.
