The Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs will hold an open house/ice cream social for potential volunteers from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 5, at the Johnson Victrola Museum, 375 S. New St. in Dover.

The informal gathering will provide potential volunteers with an opportunity to learn about the division’s programs and speak with current volunteers about their experiences working at the agency. The event will also include an after-hours museum tour. Admission is free and open to the public, however, reservations are requested by contacting the division’s volunteer services coordinator, Deanna Rishell, at 302-736-7411 or HCA_VolunteerSvcs@state.de.us.

The Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs is an agency of the state of Delaware that provides a diverse array of services including administration of the state historic preservation office, operation of six museums and a conference center, conservation of the state’s archaeological and historic-objects collections and management of historic properties across the state.

Potential volunteer opportunities at the division include service in museum tours, historic preservation, archaeology, collections management, maintenance, special events, friends groups, marketing, information technology, research, horticulture, administration and much more.

Volunteers working at the division will be making a valuable contribution to the preservation of Delaware’s historical and cultural legacies. In addition, volunteer service provides hands-on work, opportunities to meet new people and become a valuable team member, a chance to share talents with others and learn new skills, and opportunities to earn credit for internships or service hours.
