Volunteers Needed for Annual
Open House, July 15-20
The PS&NRRHS needs volunteers to help staff our museum during the week of the Allegany County Fair, July 15-20, 2019. The museum, which is located right on the midway of the fairgrounds, will be open daily from 12 Noon—8PM.
Volunteers need not be "experts" on the PS&N. We will pair you up with more seasoned volunteers. Instead, just an energetic, enthusiastic attitude and a willingness to welcome the general public to the museum is all that's required. Remember, it's 2019 and many people have never been on a train before. Many questions are of the nature, "What was the caboose used for?" and "Did people actually sleep in this car?"
Volunteers who commit to at least a 4-hour block will receive a pass covering their admission to the fair, plus a green PS&NRRHS t-shirt (while supplies last).
|Anyone interested in volunteering should contact John M. Muchler at 607-566-9598 or via email.|
