ATTENTION VOLUNTEERS!                         Interested in History?


Volunteer Docents Are in Great Demand!

The Reedville Fishermen’s Museum needs help from our local area residents and friends. We are in need of new docents to man the gift shop and guide our visitors through the museum and its campus. Shifts are only 3.5 hours long. There are two docents per shift and two shifts per day. If you can spare time to volunteer for one or two shifts per month, it would make a huge difference! You can even pick which days of the week you would like to help. Complete training is provided and it is not difficult to learn.

Please contact the Museum office at 804.453.6529 if you would like to join our wonderful volunteer force!

Thank you so much
