provided to The Santiva Chronicle

The Sanibel Historical Village is seeking volunteers and has scheduled training for Monday, Jan. 17, and Monday, Jan. 24, both days at 1 p.m. in Shore Haven at the village, 950 Dunlop Rd.

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 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 1 to 4 p.m. 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 p.m. and 1:30 p.m., depending on docent availability. There is no extra charge for these tours and no advance reservations are required.

Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free. The village has handicap access to all but one building, the tiny Post Office. For more information, call (239) 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
