The following are some of the volunteer opportunities currently open in Freeborn County. If you can help with these or would like to volunteer for others, call Pat Stumme, Retired and Senior Volunteer Program director, at Senior Resources, 377-7433.

Museum Tour Guide: Freeborn County Historical Museum needs morning and afternoon guides for the school tours beginning in early May. Call the museum at 373-8003, or sign up for the orientation at 1:30 p.m. April 27 and reserve your museum and historical village tour guide materials.

Intergenerational Garden: Let’s make spring lively and lovely together. Help children at The Children’s Center to plant their flower garden. Adult volunteers come one morning late in May and help each child plant one or two petunias and then water them. You can help a child learn how flowers grow.
