Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Robbins Hunter Museum and Gardens
There are so many ways to participate as a volunteer at the Robbins Hunter Museum and Gardens. No matter your interests or your time constraints, I am certain that you have something to offer that will benefit both the museum and you personally.
Volunteer Docents are the hosts and hostesses of the Avery-Downer House, greeting guests when they knock at the front door. Their welcome is followed by a tour, which invariably entertains and educates the visitors. Our docent team has become a close group of friends enjoying a special field trip and brown bag lunches throughout the year.
Committee positions include collections, programs, finance, and building and grounds. Members of the community, who have special interest in serving on one of these committees with a board member as chair, bring knowledge and expertise far beyond what the Robbins Hunter Museum budget allows and each of the committee members can take great pride in the success of these projects.
Interns from our local college campuses are welcomed. RHM can provide a learning laboratory for young people who may be interested in entering the museum field. At the same time, they help the museum move forward projects for which we are not staffed.
Odd jobs are always waiting to be completed. Whether polishing silver or stuffing envelopes for special mailing, volunteers are vital to keeping up with everyday tasks.
Are you intrigued? Do you see yourself in one of the above roles? I would welcome an email or phone call to answer your questions.
