Volunteers help maintain the Blacksmith Shop and provide Blacksmithing Demonstrations and tours for school groups, the general public, and at special events. To maintain the shop, plan for theses events, and make items for sale, the Blacksmith Shop Committee meets regularly at the Lacombe Blacksmith Shop.
The Society regularly hosts special events & fundraising activities for the Museums and needs volunteers to help with planning and facilitating these events.
Heritage buildings require constant maintenance, in addition to the hard work of installing new exhibits and moving artifacts in our spaces. Maintenance volunteers provide assistance with repairs and handy work around the Museums, and are able to do some heavy lifting!
The Museums are proud of their grounds and want to ensure that our spaces remain beautiful and clean. Gardening Volunteers assist with maintaining exterior landscaping at the Michener House Museum and Blacksmith Shop Museum from Spring to Fall.
