Sedona AZ (March 13, 2019) – The Sedona Heritage Museum will host a wine and cheese reception for anyone interested in knowing more about local history and the museum on Thursday March 28 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
The event will start with wine, nibbles and sweet treats. After a special docent-led tour of the museum and facilities, docent Clancy Sage will give a presentation about the life of John James (J.J.) Thompson, Oak Creek Canyon’s first permanent Anglo settler and his family. “J.J. was a very interesting man with an industrious life and more than a little penchant for wanderlust.” says Clancy. “He and his descendants were responsible for helping build our first roads, operated more than one post office and J.J. joined the posse that caught up with Sedona’s first counterfeiters!”
Museum Volunteer Coordinator, Julie Holst will discuss the varied museum volunteer opportunities that are ideal for anyone looking to expand their social footprint in the community. If you are unable to attend on the 28th, please contact Julie at 282-7038 for a one-on-one meeting.
The Museum has openings for new volunteers in many roles, including Museum docent, exhibits and education, tour committee, special event committees, archives and collections, digitization projects, other special projects, and the gift shop, to name just a few.
Current Museum volunteers will tell you that they place a high value on their time at the Museum. Besides contributing to the preservation of local history, they have forged many new and lasting friendships. Time spent is fun and schedules are flexible.
RSVPs are appreciated by not necessary. For more information, call 928-282-7038.
