The Museum Association of East Muskingum is looking forward to opening both the John and Annie Glenn Museum in New Concord and the National Road & Zane Grey Museum in Norwich as soon as it is safe to do so. Although the opening date has not yet been scheduled, they are preparing for the new season and looking for new volunteers to help in a variety of ways, suitable to one’s knowledge, interest, skills and/or talents. Some may enjoy being a tour guide at either museum. Those interested in theater may wish to become an actor at the Glenn Museum, guiding visitors through the main floor of the home describing life during one of three different time periods; 1937 during the Great Depression, 1944 during WWII or 1962, the year John Glenn orbited Earth. (This year, in 2021, it will be 1937 – “The Life of an American Family during the Great Depression”.) Or you may prefer to help in other ways such as cleaning or yard work to help keep the museums clean, tidy and ready to welcome guests.
“You don’t have to be an expert in history, you just need to have an interest in our local history and a desire to share that with others” said Debbie Allender, Operations Director. We invite anyone interested to consider joining our group of volunteers, some of which have been with us for many years.
