Volunteers Needed on Fridays

The Carlsbad Historical Society welcomes volunteers to help show the Shipley-Magee House and Museum from 11 am to 3 pm on Fridays. Volunteers will be accompanied by a paid docent, and they will get training. Having a second person frees the docent to do historical archival work.

You can volunteer for any number of Fridays a month. If you can only do 2 hours, we can work with that.

Please reply here, or email cbadhistory@yahoo.com

Thank you.
