The Barton County Historical Museum and Village will conduct its annual volunteer orientation meeting at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 8, at the Village south of the Arkansas River bridge on U.S. 281. The meeting is for anyone in Barton County who seeks information about volunteer service at the museum.

This meeting will help volunteers, new or returning, to become acquainted with life at the Village and to learn more about the new happenings and the many new displays at the museum, said Karen Naylor, volunteer coordinator.

The meeting will feature a short orientation and information about past and current happenings at the museum. Refreshments will be served.

Those persons who are interested in becoming a volunteer – and those who just want to learn more about the Village – are invited to attend the orientation without obligation, Naylor said. For more information call the Historical Village office, 620-793-5125, or call Naylor, 620-793-6394.
