Presenter: John Laurence, Volunteer Coordinator
On Saturday, February 27 from 10:00am-12:00pm, current and prospective museum volunteers are invited to attend a socially distanced Volunteer Recognition & Training Seminar at the Fairport Historical Museum. If we are unable to meet in person due to Covid constraints, the orientation will take place virtually. A decision will be made as the date approaches and all registered participants will be notified.
Orientation is an opportunity for volunteers to get to know each other and to get a refresher course on everything from greeting visitors to writing up gift shop sales. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to view the new exhibits before the museum re-opens to the public on March 6 and to meet John Laurence, our Volunteer Coordinator.
Museum volunteers work one two-hour shift per month greeting and assisting visitors. New volunteers are paired with veteran volunteers for each shift, and training is provided.
