Your commitment can be one-time for an event or as often as you like. 

Or if you have a special skill to share, please let us know!

 Volunteers Needed! 
    Do you like to bake? You can help the Geary County Historical Society with our efforts to make up for lost public funds and offer exciting new programs to the community right in your own home. We need home-made items such as cookies, pies and cakes for events like the Ice Cream Social, and educational programs at the Museum throughout the year. If you can help, contact the Museum at 238-1666. We will check with you when a fund raiser or program is coming up.
