WHITE MILLS - Get out of the house on Wednesday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and come to a Volunteer Open House at the Dorflinger Glass Museum. Refreshments will be served.
The museum and the Wildflower Music Festival are looking for volunteers to help during the 2017 season. Help is needed from Wednesday to Sunday at the reception desk of the museum and at the gift shop. The Wildflower concerts are Saturdays from July 1 to August 12. Time commitments vary.
“Volunteering is great way to meet new people, have fun, and make a difference in the community,” said Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary Executive Director Joan Gillner. “We couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers. Many great friendships have happened here among our helpers.”
Positions at the museum include receptionists and docents. The gift shop needs help in waiting on customers and stocking. Training will be given.
The Wildflower Music Festival needs ticket sellers, ticket takers, help at the hospitality table, crowd control, and golf cart drivers. You can volunteer for one concert or several concerts.
Anyone attending the open house will be given an overview of volunteer positions and a brief tour. Those who bring a friend will receive a gift.
The village of White Mills lies halfway between Hawley and Honesdale on Route 6.

Continue on for 1/10 of a mile to the entrance of the Sanctuary on your right.
