The Museum is always excited to welcome new volunteers to the team!
Volunteers help with a number of tasks at the museum and in fact it is entirely operated by volunteers. So if you like to bake, research, write or create, consider connecting with the Middleville and District Museum team. Maybe you like to dig in the dirt and design beautiful outdoor spaces. Why not give us a call? There are always light maintenance tasks and jobs that take a crew to complete.
Some of the opportunities include:
Welcoming visitors and guiding them around the museum (4 hour shifts)
Contributing snacks for events (occasional volunteer)
Light Maintenance (cleaning indoors)
Carpentry and general maintenance of the building and grounds
We also rely on volunteers for the many projects that the museum takes on. If you have a skill or expertise that you think might fit in with our activities or have some new ideas, please give us a call.
You may also be interested in becoming a member of our Board of Directors. The Board meets monthly. Each board member takes on additional duties such as artifact research, public relations, genealogy and/or the tasks mentioned above.
Student Volunteer Hours! If you are a student or know one who needs some volunteer hours, consider the Middleville and District Museum as an option. Students can help with things like yard work or events or research. There are lots of suitable tasks available. Gain valuable experience as you fill your volunteer hour requirements. Give us a call or contact us through our social media links.
Winter is almost here and even though the Museum is closed to tours, there are still opportunities to get involved at the Museum
During the off season, Museum volunteers continue to work on research for the public, updating exhibits and planning for the upcoming season. If you have some time to spare, why not contact us and lend a hand with some interesting projects.
The 2023 Season
With the acquisition of additional land last year, the Museum has made a start on developing the landscape around the Museum. If you have an interest in gardening and like working with others who also do, then check out the opportunities for volunteering in our upcoming yard projects next spring. We would like to plant rock gardens and some perennial flower beds. We are hoping to add some benches and birdhouses for visitors to enjoy. If interested, please e-mail us or give us a call.
Drop by and see what's happening at the museum. You may just decide to join us and lend a talent, skill or helping hand.
