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This exhibition uses firsthand accounts, photos, letters and historical documents to share the story of Japanese American soldiers returning home to Hood River after World War II.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

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.
