Center Volunteers

Do you have time that you could volunteer to the OHC on a day to day basis? Your help could be used in one of the following areas:

  • CLERICAL – Answer phone, greet visitors and introduce them to OHC, mailings, making copies, sorting.
  • DOCENTS – The OHC is anxious to revive its docent program. Docents give tours and answer questions to school groups and general OHC visitors. An interest in history and the ability to tell a good story is a plus in this area.
  • GENERAL – Helping with receptions and events. Helping to care for the historic buildings and grounds, and … helping to look after Ol’ 9.
