The Rensselaer County Historical Society participates in Troy Night Out on the last Friday of each month, has several summer deck parties, and has occasional evening programs throughout the year for members and the public. It also hosts the very popular Holiday Greens Show the week after Thanksgiving. Volunteers are needed to act as hosts, to set up for these events, to assist with food preparation and service, to check people in, and to clean up afterwards.

We are looking for volunteers willing to make a long-term commitment to the organization. Potential volunteers are required to 1) submit a brief resume so we can assess their strengths/experience to best employ them in working in the museum/library, and 2) attend a basic orientation to the museum/library and its collection. Sessions are held every few months, so there could be a slightdelay in beginning work.
