Historical Society seeks program volunteers

UNION – The McHenry County Historical Society needs a volunteer to coordinate school programs this season.

Responsibilities for the coordinator, using materials supplied by the society, include:

• Calling volunteers to sign them up for specific program dates (names and phone numbers will be provided).

• Sending postcard reminders to those volunteers.

• Making sure there are adequate supplies on hand for the West Harmony teachers (e.g., pencils, paper, chalk supplied by the society).

• Preparing free family passes for all students.

Volunteers to portray one-room-school teachers in West Harmony Schoolhouse also are being sought

The society provides training and observation and a teacher’s guide with suggested lesson plans.

To volunteer, call Kurt Begalka at 815-923-2267.
