Details

The Mount Horeb Area Historical Society (MHAHS) will host an Open House for prospective volunteers, with two sessions offered to accommodate varying schedules: Tuesday, April 10 (4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.) and Wednesday, April 11 (9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.).

At these informal events, interested individuals are invited to drop by the Driftless Historium (100 S 2nd St) to chat with MHAHS staff and Board members. Light refreshments will be provided.

MHAHS is seeking to build their volunteer corps. The new Driftless Historium History Center & Gift Shop is committed to maintaining regular business hours and providing a positive image for the Mount Horeb community. To do so, this local nonprofit relies on volunteers to staff the front desk, greet visitors and man the museum’s unique gift shop and book store.

The Driftless Historium is open Wednesday through Sunday, with two shifts staffed daily—9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (As little as one 3.5 hour shift per month really helps!) No experience is required; all training is provided, though prospective volunteers should bear in mind that interaction with the public is a key component of this role. MHAHS makes a central effort to provide a fun and supportive atmosphere and scheduling flexibility. Please note that the Driftless Historium is a Silver Cord-approved facility.
