Sherman County Historical Society: New Museum Exhibit & New Hire
Moro, Ore. - Sherman County Historical Society’s national-award-winning Museum volunteers tell stories with publications, programs and museum collections in interpretive exhibits. As of September 1st, travelers from 26 states, Alaska to Florida, and 8 countries found their way to the museum and to other attractions, amenities and events in the region.
Over the winter, the Museum Team will be creating a new display of the Sherman County Journal collection. A team of volunteers will be needed in October and November to help with moving and cleaning print shop equipment, one-time and short-term tasks. January through April volunteers will be planning and installing the exhibit for a May 1, 2012 opening. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and see www.shermanmuseum.org <http://www.shermanmuseum.org> to learn more.
For over 25 years the Society enjoyed remarkable achievements with an all-volunteer part-time museum staff – exhibits, publications, programs and tours. With support from Sherman County, the Society is preparing to hire a full-time director. This will strengthen the organization, do more to preserve collections, and showcase what is so special about Sherman County’s communities.
Success depends on members and volunteers who support the Society’s mission – to gather, preserve, research, interpret, publish and exhibit materials related to Sherman County. Dues are $30 per household and benefits include twice-yearly newsletters and the popular twice-yearly historical anthology, Sherman County: For the Record, pre-paid museum admission and 10% discount in The Museum Store. The Museum is open 10-5 daily through October.
