Volunteer Open House
March Field Air Museum
Saturday, May 19, 2018
1 p.m. to 3 p.m. - Free Admission
Fascinated by aviation and military history? Interested in working with airplanes? Excited by the fact that historic March Field in Riverside is celebrating its Centennial during 2018? March Field Air Museum is now recruiting adults who are interested in volunteering to help communicate humanity’s reach for the skies and March Field’s pivotal role in the development of flight. For those interested, a special, drop-in Volunteer Open House is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, 2018, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Museum. The Open House will provide an opportunity to meet current volunteers in-person and learn more about the many volunteer opportunities available at the Museum.
Each year, more than 150 men and women, veterans, non-veterans, aviation enthusiasts and those interested in preserving the past and educating the future volunteer for March Field Air Museum’s programs – including exhibit fabrication, airplane restoration and maintenance, even clerical work. A background in history is not required to become a volunteer. In fact, many of the volunteers in the popular program began with little knowledge of aviation or military history. As they become familiar with the Museum’s varied programs, many volunteers take on additional responsibilities, such as conducting research or giving talks to community organizations.
New volunteers can choose to work in the Museum interacting with visitors from around the world, working in the restoration hangar on rare and unique aircraft, and taking on many other interesting tasks in this dynamic and fun environment. Volunteering represents a serious commitment, but the hours are flexible and the rewards can be tremendous. Volunteers receive perks such as a discount at the Museum Store, invitation to an annual thank-you luncheon, and the pride of working at Riverside’s top Trip Advisor-rated attraction.
