CBMM to host Vol­un­teer Friendraiser Feb. 12

Sunday Star - - CROSSWORD -

ST. MICHAELS — 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 and im­prove guest ex­pe­ri­ences, CBMM is look­ing for new vol­un­teers in­ter­ested in shar­ing the Bay’s his­tory, cul­ture and en­vi­ron­ment with guests. No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, but an en­thu­si­asm for the Ch­e­sa­peake, a will­ing­ness to learn and the gift of gab are es­sen­tial.

Those in­ter­ested in learn­ing more about these vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties are in­vited to join CBMM vol­un­teers and staff at a Vol­un­teer Friendraiser at 10 a.m. Tues­day, Feb. 12, in the mu­seum’s Van Len­nep Au­di­to­rium. This event is free, but reg­is­tra­tion is en­cour­aged at cbmm.org/friendraiser.

This Vol­un­teer Friendraiser in­cludes com­pli­men­tary re­fresh­ments and the op­por­tu­nity for prospec­tive vol­un­teers to learn more about in­ter­pre­tive op­por­tu­ni­ties at the mu­seum, with em­pha­sis on adult and school group tours, guest greet­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence, 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 guests an­nu­ally to its 18-acre cam­pus and ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram­ming.

In ad­di­tion to fel­low­ship, train­ing, and en­rich­ment trips, vol­un­teers also en­joy spe­cial events and so­cials through­out the year, an an­nual recog­ni­tion re­cep­tion, li­brary priv­i­leges, dis­counts in the Mu­seum Store and more. For de­tails, visit cbmm.org.
