Get your history on: Hangar 25 Air Museum in need of volunteers

Interested in history? Big Spring? Aviation? Military?Hangar 25 Air Museum is looking for some folks who have a little spare time on their hands, according to board member Sherry Hodnett. “Volunteers allow the director of the museum to get out in the public and do more PR (public relations) while not having to worry about all the other things getting done,” Hodnett said. “It also frees up time for the director to get out in the community and take part in programs informing people about the museum.”The volunteers help in numerous areas of the museum, including the gift shop, giving tours, answering phones, housekeeping, cataloging, helping with displays, assisting in special events, computer work and more. “There is something for everyone who wants to volunteer their time,” Hodnett said. “Even if you don't feel comfortable answering phones or some of the other things, there is always being a greeter. Having someone to greet those coming into the museum, whether it be for special events or during regular hours, is something we are always needing.”Those volunteering their time don't have to dedicate all day every day … even a few hours a day can be a huge help. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.For those wanting to volunteer, contact Emma Bogard at 267-2963; Hodnett at 452-577-0712 or the Hangar at 264-1999. The museum is located at 1911 Apron Drive.
