Historical Society looking for volunteers

The Gilroy Historical Society is looking for volunteers to staff their museum on Fifth Street.

Shifts are three hours long – either from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and volunteers are only needed for one or two shifts per month.

The job entails greeting guests and helping them with research, giving tours to individuals or school groups and answering questions from community members.

To volunteer, go to the City of Gilroy’s website (www.ci.gilroy.ca.us) and under the “community” tab, click “volunteering opportunities.” Fill out the volunteer form online – just be sure to state in your application that you want to work in the museum.
