Volunteer

We are grateful to our volunteers for their tireless dedication, but Olde Meck needs more volunteers so we can continue to serve our members and visitors to the Family Research Center (FRC).  If you have some time and can help, please take a look at the opportunities listed below.  We have jobs that can be done at the FRC or at your home, and some that require no experience.  With our recent move to our new location, our most pressing need is to keep the FRC open five days a week, so we need volunteers who can make a weekly commitment.
