Volunteers Needed

Although the Museum has some volunteers, it isn’t nearly enough for coverage at the museum on Fridays and Saturdays. Museum experience is not necessary. If you’re an honest person, willing to donate 4 or 5 hours a month by sitting, greeting, answering, and calculating…then we need you. The work is not difficult but it is important. It’s turning on the lights and making sure they are all turned off before exiting the building. You greet people as they enter the museum, give them a 2 minute brief of the museum (already written) and log them in on the attendance sheet. It’s answering the phone and taking messages. It’s attending to the gift shop by selling items to our visitors. It’s being honest enough not to steal the mere pittance we take in the gift shop. ┬áThere is library staff downstairs ready to answer your questions, should you have a problem. There’s a check list for our volunteers so you don’t have to memorize the location of the light switches. It’s making sure food and drinks are not brought into the museum and that children act accordingly. It’s allowing Lucy the Library Cat to come and sit in your lap. Sometimes there are many visitors (over 20) and sometimes there might be no one. But you never know when there might be a visitor and therefore we need coverage. Bernie is only part-time working Tues-Thurs which is why we need volunteers for those Fridays and Saturdays. Friday hours are 1-5pm and Saturday 10am-3pm.

If you are able to donate your time, please call the museum and talk to Bernie at 642-1515 or stop by to pick up a volunteer form.

THANK YOU!

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

You will find listed here upcoming Educational Programs at the Pember Museum. There will also be posts from past programs. I hope to post photos of nature with descriptions, program photos and even special events, as I wish.

I’m new to the blogging community, so bear with me.

Thanks,
