THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Amberg Historical Seeks Museum Help
Issue Date: June 27, 2019
Amberg"The Amberg Historical Society Museum is off to a good start for the 2019 summer season. But they are having a problem. They are extremely short of people to keep the buildings open and walk visitors through the displays and artifacts. They have already had to cut the open days from two to one. For this season we are only open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The volunteersthey do have are sometimes working multiple shifts and on a few occasions more than once a month.
It is not necessary to be an Amberg historian. Almost all of the displays are self-explanatory and accompanied with video and or auditory guiding. Current mentors and guides would be willing to meet and serve with those who are not familiar with the museum. They also have printed guide and orientation materials available for helpers.
The Museum is fortunate that the Town of Amberg and its Board along with many volunteers help maintain the buildings and a core of Society members keep the displays updated and the building's interiors clean. The museum attracts several hundred visitors each season and is among the most popular local tourist attractions.
If any interest in the community and can spare just three hours once a month, either from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. call the secretary at 715-759-5959 or the curator at 715-759-5372.
