Earlier this month I attended the first 2014 meeting of the San Lorenzo Pioneer Cemetery Friends... and I leaped off the cliff and volunteered. I am now the official Volunteer Coordinator. Eeek!
Normally when I volunteer for things, I like to stay behind the scenes as much as possible. I don't mind doing grunt work, but DO NOT put me on stage with lines to speak! I do not want to be in charge or out in front. However, I decided that I needed to do this so that I could include the experience on my museum resume, since most museums now depend on volunteers a LOT more than they should have to.
My duties will include knowing who will be attending each function (other than regular meetings), assigning people to the various tasks, and also recruiting more volunteers. Speaking of which, I managed to snag my first (potential) new volunteer, too! :-)
