MATTHEWS – The Matthews Heritage Museum is looking for docents or tour guides.
In addition to learning about Matthews history, volunteers learn about the history of Tank Town, which is a temporary exhibit on an African-American neighborhood. Occasionally, volunteers take trips to other historic sites of interest.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays at 232 N. Trade St.
Each volunteer is asked to take one shift of three hours once a month. Shifts are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 to 4 p.m.
The museum is looking to recruit volunteers for specific shifts of the second Friday morning of the month, the second Saturday morning of the month and the third Saturday afternoon of the month.
An initial training class of four days will orient new volunteers. A new training class will be offered beginning Saturday, April 6, from 10 a.m. to noon and continue on April 13, 27 and May 4. Ongoing training is held on the first Thursday of every month throughout the year from 10 a.m. to noon.
