Volunteers Needed

VOLUNTEERS — We always need more!

Under “normal” circumstances we have four volunteers who do the docent/working duty every Thursday morning, another two regulars for Thursday afternoons, two Friday morning regulars, and still another two for Friday afternoons. And “normal” circumstances have Roberta in the museum all day on Saturdays, which means only one or two volunteers need to be scheduled for Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon.

But, that’s just when things are “normal.” If something unexpected comes up — such as a family or medical issue — volunteers are needed to fill in for the “regulars.” We have a few dedicated members who can be counted on to fill in in a pinch, but we can always use more backup volunteers.

And, we really need more volunteers for Saturday shifts. Some on our volunteer list are available only on Saturdays, but not every Saturday.

Getting into the volunteer docent program is easy and painless. After “signing up,” a new volunteer will be given a training manual containing written information about a docent’s duties and a video outlining docent procedures. New volunteers also get “on the job” training with an experienced docent.

Doing the docent thing can be an enjoyable experience, and docents can meet some interesting people. You never know who’s going to drop in.

Donations Needed

Have you done your spring cleaning?? Instead of throwing away your unneeded/unwanted items, how about donating them to our annual yard sale. We are in need of most saleable items – but please no clothing, TV sets or computers. We would appreciate any antiques, collectibles, furniture, household items, small appliances, electronic items, radios, kitchen items, tools, automotive, home décor, knick-knacks, yard items, old books and magazines, holiday items and/or what have you. Please bring any donations you might have to the Museum.

Just like car gas, aviation fuel has gone (excuse the pun) “sky high.” Aircraft such as the B-17 always need fuel when they come to visit and appreciate any fuel we can give them. Even at our cost this can be a big expense. If you would be interested in sponsoring or helping to sponsor an aircraft we would greatly appreciate any and all donations toward the cost of aircraft fuel. Please mark your donation “for aircraft fuel.”
