Tour Guides Needed for Museum

The Albion Historical Society is in need of volunteers to give tours at its Gardner House Museum. It is open on Saturdays and Sundays between 2-4 p.m. from Mother's Day weekend through the end of September. The society needs at least two guides during each weekend day to showcase the Victorian house from the late 1800’s. Guides will learn the highlights of its three floors as well as the basic history of Albion.  If you are interested in becoming a docent, please call the museum at (517)629-5100.

Membership Drive to be held July 22

The Albion Historical Society will hold its annual membership drive at five area locations on Friday, July 22, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Membership tables will be located at Family Fare, Homestead Savings Bank, First Merit Bank, BlueOx Credit Union, and Chemical Bank of Albion.

The historical society always welcomes new members. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, are able to volunteer at the museum, and have the satisfaction of knowing they are helping to care for the past. Membership applications will be available during the drive and at the Gardner House Museum.
Watch for the membership tables at each location and take a moment to learn more about the Albion Historical Society.  For questions about the drive, call Barb McAuliffe at (517)629-2879.
