Historical Society 2016 Volunteer Fair at The Barn
The Delaware County Historical Society will be holding its 2016 Volunteer Fair
on Thursday, May 19th 7-9 pm
at The Barn at Stratford
There are so many exciting endeavors underway at the Delaware County Historical Society. Volunteers are needed more than ever! No matter what your skills, interests, or availability, there is a place for you.
Volunteering is our Tradition
The Delaware County Historical Society has, until this year, been an all volunteer organization. We are community people working to discover, preserve, and share the rich history of Delaware County Ohio.
What does The Historical Society Do?
We reach out to our community and its visitors. Year-round we have events and programs that engage our neighbors. From helping a homeowner research the provenance of their homestead to taking traveling “history carts” to our schools, we keep our history alive.
We also research our history, catalog the photos, documents, and objects of our history. We use powerful software to manage our ever-growing collections. We research, author, edit, publish, and present on local history topics. We photograph and videograph to preserve history as well as comparing yesteryear to today. You may have seen our Theater Tours of Delaware during April’s First Friday celebration of the Strand’s Century of Cinema.
Why Volunteer with The Society?
Volunteering at the Historical Society is a great way to learn more about the Delaware community. You may pick up new skills as we provide “on-the-job” training. Whatever your skills, your contributions are needed and will be appreciated. Not only that, we enjoy working together and have a good time.
What’s a Volunteer Fair?
A Volunteer Fair is a volunteer recruitment event. The Committee Chairs, Volunteer Coordinators and Project Managers “pitch” their activities and projects to the volunteers. After the presentations, prospective volunteers mingle with the speakers and current volunteers over refreshments. This collegial approach to volunteer recruitment has been a tradition in the Society for years.
Come and join us on May 19th at 7pm at The Barn at Stratford.
