There are wonderful exhibits to be seen at the Chico Museum in Downtown Chico ... and it takes a lot of people to make them possible. Specifically, volunteers.

The museum is currently featuring "Mechoopda This is Our Home and Here We Remain" ... compiled with help from the local Mechoopoda Tribe, told from their perspective. Also, "100 Years of Chico History in Black and White", a collection of photos from 1860 - 1960.

Volunteers are needed for several different areas, including: Front Desk/Reception, Collections Management, Fundraising, Maintenance/Repair, Docents/Tours, Exhibit Installation, Special Event Planning, Research/Archives, Gift Shop and Grant Writing.

A Volunteer Open House is scheduled for Saturday, January 10th at 10:30 a.m. The museum is housed in a former Carnegie Library building, located at 141 Salem Street, across from the Madison Bear Garden.

Also planned this month is a "Sip and Paint" fundraiser with artist Christine MacShane. It's scheduled for 5 p.m. on January 25th, inside the museum.
