Volunteer Millers and Docents

Without the support of volunteers and docents, it would be impossible to operate and maintain the Mill. Volunteering at the Mill is a fun way to spend a Saturday for almost any age, whether you're giving tours of this historic treasure, or rolling up your sleeves to help with the grinding process. We're always looking for volunteers. Ages 13 and up are welcome. Come spend your Saturdays with us!

Art at the Mill Volunteers

Art at the Mill occurs for two weeks in the spring and the fall each year.  With over 1000 works of art coming for each show, volunteer help is needed!  This is a great opportunity for those wanting to be more involved with local art, and for any student looking to complete volunteer hours.
