Summertime Volunteer Opportunities at Edison Ford

Fort Myers, FL (June 29, 2012)The Edison Ford volunteer program includes more than 250 dedicated volunteers who contribute their talents and labor to every department and activity at Edison Ford.  Surprisingly, during the summer months our need for volunteers increases! Currently the Edison Ford is seeking volunteers for the following positions:  Museum docents, group tour docents, Lab docents, river cruise docents, gardening and horticulture, and office support.

Volunteers at the Edison Ford receive training from professional staff and enjoy many benefits including FREE membership.  The Edison Ford volunteer group is active socially and professionally with monthly volunteer lectures and meetings which provide an opportunity to hear guest speakers and learn more about the history, science, and arts that are reflected in the site’s legacy.

On July 10, at 9:30 a.m. join staff at the Volunteer Monthly Meeting.  The Legacy of Henry Ford’s Cars and Engines will be presented by Curatorial Staff that will discuss the life and legacy of Henry Ford as well as antique cars and early combustible engines.  The program will be held in the Edison Ford Museum and is open to current Edison Ford volunteers as well as prospective volunteers and the public.  For more information contact the Edison Ford Volunteer Department at 239-334-7419 or visit the website:  www.edisonfordwinterestates.orgfor a volunteer application.

The Edison Ford is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. The Edison Ford is the winner of the 2009 National Stewardship Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is an official project of “Save America’s Treasures” at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a Florida Historic Landmark and a National Register Historic Site.
