The Vernon County Historical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Without volunteers, we could not function. We need docents to guide visitors around the museums, and workers to clean, label and accession artifacts. We need volunteers to do general carpentry and electrical work, paint, dust, sweep, pack, unpack and create displays and exhibits.
Although these jobs are unpaid, they are extremely important and most volunteers feel enormous satisfaction in the work.
Volunteering is a good way to meet people, get involved in the community and also to learn new skills. Most volunteers work at least three hours a week, while some are able to do more.
The Society is extremely flexible in adjusting to meet the schedules of its volunteers. If you can’t work a set pattern each week, volunteer as a substitute who can be contacted for temporary duty. Give us a call--we can’t wait to meet you!
