Docents Dodge Deluge

Yesterday we had a steady rain a good part of the day, but it didn't deter a group of our docents from coming to the Museum to see what's new for the 2012 season. We are blessed with wonderful volunteers!

Have you ever considered donating a couple of hours of your time now and then? We are always in need of folks who can welcome visitors, but also need extra hands to care for the grounds or do special projects. It's not necessary to be a member (though we'd love to have you!).

Volunteering at the Museum can be a great learning opportunity for home schoolers or a wonderful service project for high schoolers, too.

Those of us who spend a lot of time here see the parents who bring their toddlers, moms who bring prom-going couples for photos, brides and grooms who marry at the log cabin, and walkers on their way to the trail who check on our flowers. We see what a focal point the Museum District is to the community. We invite all ages and abilities to join us in preserving our history and keeping our Museum district beautiful and functioning. If you're interested in participating, please contact us at SSCHS, P.O. Box 523, Greenwood, AR 72936.
