March 5, 2018 – The Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum has seen a surge in popularity over the last year and is looking for additional volunteers to help with all aspects of the museum’s operations. Those who have been wanting to volunteer and contribute to their community but haven’t found the right opportunity are invited to check out the NCNGRR Museum at their Volunteer Open House on Saturday March 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Take a docent-led tour of the museum exhibits, the railyard and the restoration shop. Weather permitting, the popular railbus will be in operation so potential volunteers can take in the full NCNGRR experience.
The museum is an all-volunteer run organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of local transportation history and artifacts from the narrow gauge railroad era. The volunteer staff are happy to share their insights into volunteering at the museum. Immediate opportunities are available for docents, restoration shop crew and gift shop helpers. No previous experience is required, just a positive attitude and a willingness to get involved. Training will be provided and volunteer shifts of as little as 3 hours per week may be arranged.
For more information about the museum or the opportunities available, check the website: www.ncngrrmuseum.org. Or contact the museum at 530-470-0902. The museum is located at 5 Kidder Court, Nevada City near the intersection of Bost and New Mohawk.
