The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
One of the unique features of the McHenry County Historical Society and Museum is that we are fortunate enough to have a genuine, 1895 one-room school on our Museum Campus. We are looking for individuals (men and women alike) who would enjoy portraying a schoolmarm or master during our "West Harmony Experience" for groups of 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade students from the County. These groups usually come Tuesday or Wednesday mornings, so availability on those days until 12:00 pm is most preferred.
All the information, training, and appropriate-era clothing will be provided. Previous education or tour experience is not required! Contact us today to find out when our next training session will be!
