Collections

BVM Collection

Collections volunteers help the Museum to continually digitize our ephemera collection (brochures, certificates, postcards, paper records) and refine information in our database. This work involves using a scanner and editing Excel spreadsheets. This work is best suited to volunteers with attention to detail, passion for accuracy and an temperament for repetition. Volunteers receive direction from the Assistant Curator.

Costumed Interpretation

Costumed Interpreters assist on site when the Museum is open to the general public, usually from May-September and November through to early January.  Volunteers dress in costume and are usually stationed in homes and businesses in the Village. They make visitors feel welcome and engage them in learning through informal conversations. These volunteers may also lead interpretive activities for the general public.
