Museum seeks Exhibit Team volunteers

The History Museum is looking for volunteers to assist the Exhibit Team as they install “What if Heroes Were Not Welcome Home,” a special exhibit on loan from the Oregon Historical Society.

This exhibition uses firsthand accounts, photos, letters and historical documents to share the story of Japanese American soldiers returning home to Hood River after World War II.

The Exhibit Team will need help removing and packing current exhibits, installing large wall panels, designing and installing a window exhibit, creating interactive displays, and more. The team will be working over several days, but you do not have to be available every day to contribute.

Exhibit Team volunteer dates:

n Tuesday, Dec. 24, 1-5 p.m.

n Friday, Dec. 27, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

n Monday, Dec. 30, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

n Tuesday, Dec. 31, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

A variety of skills are needed to help with this exciting new exhibit, and this is a great opportunity to help your community connect the past and present.

For more information or to sign up, contact Carly Squyres, museum volunteer coordinator, at 541-386-6772 or thmvolunteer@hrecn.net.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
