Throughout the year the CMC hosts exhibits and fundraising events that always need extra hands.
Tasks include writing letters of thank you, donation letters, filing, answering the phone, doing followup and keeping track of donations of articles for the vintage sales plus physically keeping the library and gallery tidy. Also to keep the gallery open so that vintage sales items would be available to be sold as this is a major money maker for the museum. This is a commitment that would really help run the museum.
Tasks include setting up and taking down displays. As the collection is on an iPad, complete with photos, ideas and the choosing of articles could be done at home. Once the decisions are made about which articles are needed for the display, help is available to deliver the articles from the storage warehouse. One would then need to solicit volunteers to help put up the display and take it down. CMC needs an initiator to get the show off the ground.
CMC operates most of the displays thanks to grants received for this purpose. Other grants are constantly needed for the operation of the museum, curatorial supplies, restoration equipment, capital expenditures, computer equipment and a variety of other needs. We need someone to look for and submit all manner of grant applications.
And of course anyone with any time to give is always appreciated!
