Greet and guide visitors in the Welker Schoolhouse during the Wright County Fair

This is a great opportunity for outgoing history lovers! And with 2 volunteers per shift, it’s also a wonderful way to either meet new people or sign up as a group to spend time with a family and friends - all while giving back to a local nonprofit organization.

Volunteers at the Welker School will:

  • Engage with visitors as they explore the Schoolhouse & Cabin
  • Help sell small items from the museum gift shop
  • No prior experience needed-come and enjoy a short step back in history, then explore the fair when you’re done!

Volunteers gain free entry into the fair on the day of their shifts, however there is no free parking.
