December 29, 2021 – The Sanibel Historical Village is seeking volunteers and has scheduled training for Monday, January 17, and Monday, January 24, both days at 1:00 in Shore Haven at the Historical Village.

Volunteers are asked to commit to just six hours a month and can fill a wide variety of jobs, from tour guides to display assistants to gift shopkeepers. There are two shifts, morning from 10:00 to 1:00 and afternoon from 1:00 to 4:00. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday. Volunteers are needed for all shifts on those days. Volunteer Coordinator Sandy Nering will work with volunteers to find the best time for all.

In accordance with the city of Sanibel’s regulations, masks are required inside the buildings at this time. Guided tours are available at 10:30 and 1:30, depending on docent availability. There is no extra charge for these tours and no advance reservations are required.
