Would you like to try something new in 2014? Come to the Museum’s open house to learn about volunteer opportunities over a cup of tea. The Voelker Orth counts on the support of volunteers throughout the year.
Volunteers play an important role at the Museum, helping in the garden, getting word out about programs, participating in educational programs, working on research, lending a hand and offering a welcome at festivals and concerts. Perhaps this is the year to join us!
