So You Want to Volunteer? (Skill sharing and living history orientation) | The Conococheague Institute, Mercersburg

Saturday August 24th, 2024 * 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Preserving the historical crafts of the frontier requires us to learn those skills and pass them on, and we’ve had so many requests for volunteer workshops, that we’re hosting an open skill sharing day.
Not sure if you could survive homestead life? learn how to start a fire with flint and steel, or draw water from the well with our team.  Never dressed in historic clothes before?  Our team will talk you through the process, and even help you find your sizing with some of our own volunteer outfits.
This is the day to ask the questions that you’ve not voiced.  Our experienced team will be happy to talk about working in a museum and how to interpret to the public.
All ages are welcome for this open skill sharing day, with the hope we will gather new potential volunteers, and nurture the future historians of tomorrow.
No RSVP required. Our Saturday Programs are free thanks to the Catherine Stickell Trust and from donations by people like you.
