Buildings and Grounds Committee
These volunteers are the construction workers for the Society. They mow lawns, repair/paint/erect buildings, move furniture, etc. They also “set up” and handle parking at our main events.
Members of this committee recruit new members, send notifications for yearly dues, maintain the computerized membership records and generate membership lists and labels for use by other committees. (Computer skills a necessity).
Museum & Archives Committee
Volunteers are responsible for the respectful handling of objects and archival documents during the detailed accession, description, labeling and placement processes. Future activities include creating exhibits, maintaining collections and providing some public service. Some people with computer experience are needed, but this is not required of all committee members.
These volunteers prepare general publicity for the Society. (Newspaper articles, posters, etc.) They publish the newsletter and the annual calendar and maintain the website. Writing, computer and art skills are important.
The Education committee volunteers plan and organize education activities for children and young people.
Some committee volunteers are full time members and are responsible for planning events for the Society. Some members are called upon to work only at the events. The major events are the Blueberry Festival, Napoleon Re-enactment and Autumn in Austerlitz.
