The Time and the Valleys Museum will be hosting an Open House for potential volunteers on Sunday, May 21, from 1 to 3 pm at the Museum on St. Rt. 55, Grahamsville. Anyone interested in learning about volunteering can join current volunteers for refreshments, a museum tour and information on both volunteering and the museum’s activities. Attendees will learn about helping in the museum shop, at events and as an exhibit guide.
Benefits to being a Museum volunteer include a 10% discount in the Museum Shop, an invitation to a special yearly recognition event, gaining new skills, and meeting new people and making new friends. Volunteers can help one or two afternoons a month or more, whatever suits their lifestyle, as much or as little as they like. All information and training will be provided. No previous knowledge of history or museum experience is required, just time and a willingness to learn.
The Time and the Valleys Museum is a living and interactive resource that connects water, people and the Catskills. For additional information on the Museum call (518) 985-7700 or visit their website.
