— Are you a friendly, out­go­ing lover of the Ch­e­sa­peake? Do you en­joy work­ing with peo­ple? If so, the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Mar­itime Mu­seum needs you.

In an ef­fort to grow pub­lic pro­grams, the mu­seum is look­ing for new vol­un­teers in­ter­ested in learn­ing how to lead tours ex­plor­ing the Bay’s his­tory, cul­ture and en­vi­ron­ment. No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, but an en­thu­si­asm for the Ch­e­sa­peake, a will­ing­ness to learn and the gift of gab are es­sen­tial.

Those in­ter­ested are in­vited to join CBMM vol­un­teers and staff at a Vol­un­teer Friendraiser at 3 p.m. Tues­day, June 26, in the mu­seum’s Van Len­nep Au­di­to­rium. This event is free, but reg­is­tra­tion is en­cour­aged to bit.ly/CBMMFriend raiser.

The Vol­un­teer Friendraiser will in­clude com­pli­men­tary re­fresh­ments and the op­por­tu­nity for prospec­tive vol­un­teers to learn more about vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, with em­pha­sis on in­ter­pre­tive pro­grams, pub­lic and school group tours, and train­ing. Cur­rent vol­un­teers and staff will be on hand to an­swer ques­tions dur­ing the event.

Vol­un­teers play an es­sen­tial role in the mis­sion of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Mar­itime Mu­seum, which draws more than 80,000 an­nual guests to its 18-acre cam­pus and ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram­ming. In ad­di­tion to fel­low­ship, train­ing and en­rich­ment trips, vol­un­teers en­joy spe­cial events and so­cials through­out the year, an an­nual recognition re­cep­tion, li­brary priv­i­leges, dis­counts in the Mu­seum Store and more.
