🙋‍♂️Your Sparta Township Historical Commission is requesting volunteers to assist in completing a digital inventory of our collections donated by the public. 

Jobs include scanning, identifying people and places, creating written descriptions, and inputting on our Past Perfect software. 

No experience necessary, just a willingness to help STHC in this massive effort to digitize our entire collection. 

Please indicate interest by either
📫 Emailing history@spartahistory.org

This is a perfect opportunity for students needing volunteer hours or to fulfill an internship.
