Cedar Hill Museum Needs YOU!

Here's a guest post from Pat, Janet and the rest of the Eastern Mass Historians....

We are need help at the Cedar Hill Museum. The Girl Scout Historical Collection from the Middleboro office has been in storage for many years. This costs money which we no longer have. 

Over the past years Historians have spent hours in the storage facility weeding through file cabinets and shelves full of boxes of memorabilia, uniforms, books, and records. We have brought truck and car loads of items to Cedar Hill where methods of dealing with it all have been taking shape. This enormous task of sorting – discovering what treasures must be kept and incorporated into the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts Museum Collection, and whether duplicates or triplicates should be discarded (and how) - is not simple. This is  a time consuming process, using proper museum procedures. 

Space at Cedar Hill has been made available beginning in July. Now we need your help. Please write us into your calendars. We promise fun, air conditioning, and lunch time fellowship (bring your own brown bag goodies.)

We’ll work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 10am to 4pm on the following days: July 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 and  August 1, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29. 

College students who are interested in History, Gender Studies, Recreation, Archiving and Museum work; maybe you’ll find a paper or presentation topic in addition to learning about collections!

Your volunteer time is appreciated. Please call the museum at 781-373-4360 or email and let us know when you can come (so we can plan to have work set up for you.)

Please, make us an important part of your summer.
