VOLUNTEERS FROM THE DAYTONA BEACH, PALM COAST, AND PORT ORANGE TARGETS AFTER THEIR HOURS OF WORK HELPING TO CLEAN UP TUSCAWILLA PRESERVE WHICH SUFFERED DAMAGE FROM HURRICANE MATTHEW IN OCTOBER 2016.
Welcome to the latest edition of Arts & Sciences magazine where we look at the incredible work done by our team of volunteers here at the Museum. One of the great things about working in a museum ANDREW SANDALL is the incredible diversity of people that you have the opportunity to meet and work with. This can be seen in the wonderful volunteers that museums all around the world rely on. Volunteers assist us in so many ways by providing support to our work or by bringing in expertise that we may not have on staff. They offer their time, energy, and skills for many reasons. When I think back to all of the different museums that I have worked with, many of my fondest memories are of the volunteers that I have met. A small local history museum that I worked for in England was founded and staffed entirely by volunteers. The only hired staff being myself, a curator, and the Director. Many of these volunteers had lived near the Museum and had come together to save the last remaining historic houses in the area, putting both their money and time where their mouths were to save the site and create and staff a museum to allow others to share their story. I was able to provide technical assistance and professional care for the collections, but it was a great resource to be able to wander down to the Museum floor whenever I did not understand something that I was reading, or when I needed information on an object that I was working on. Without fail, the volunteers never disappointed and could always point me in the right direction. Even at the National Railway Museum in York, England, the largest museum that I ever worked for, there were well over 300 volunteers to complement the 100+ staff members. The volunteers were vital in bringing energy and enthusiasm to a museum that welcomed over a million visitors throughout the year. They also supported staff in the curatorial departments with detailed, specialized knowledge that really helped unlock our collections. In my role with the photographic collections, I managed several special interest volunteer groups who would travel from all over the country on a regular basis to catalog our images, create databases, and find aids that allowed fellow
researches much easier access to our 1.75m photographs. One volunteer that really stood out to me came in to help us with a small but very problematic collection we held that related to experimental research carried out in the 1970s but had no documentation or reports to back up what had been found in the images. This gentlemen had been the director of the department that organized the tests and quickly sorted and documented every image as he was not only the person who signed off on every test but was also the recipient of the report that had been produced with the results! Here at the Museum of Arts & Sciences, we have over 50 volunteers who work directly with staff to provide support and assistance in our everyday tasks or to work on special projects. This number can be doubled when factoring in the other groups who regularly help us with specified assistance like the General Electric (GE) volunteers who maintain the Children’s Museum, the Garden Club of the Halifax Country who are always making sure that our sensory garden delights visitors, our band of SLI volunteers who arrive every summer to assist our Education Department, or the team from the Daytona Beach, Palm Coast, and Port Orange Target stores who have done wonders recently to help clear up the worst devastation to Tuscawilla Preserve after Hurricane Matthew. We would not be able to do much of what we achieve here without volunteers and we appreciate their hard work more than we could ever express. In this edition of the magazine you will hear stories directly from current and former volunteers. The stories from those who volunteered in years’ past are particularly interesting as you can learn about the impact that their time working with MOAS has made on their lives and what legacy it has left them with. It says so much about our place in the local community that we have current trustees whose first experience with the Museum was as a volunteer or an SLI student. Let’s not forget that the magnificent art museum now standing on Nova Road bears the name of someone who first arrived at MOAS in 1971 as a volunteer organized by the Junior League of Daytona Beach! I hope you enjoy their stories and that they inspire you to want to join our team. I promised you that we always have plenty going on and that your help will be very much appreciated!

root family musuem LONGTIME MOAS SUPPORTERS CO-AUTHOR BOOK ABOUT THE ROOT FAMILY AND BUSINESS Alice Howell’s journey began at the Museum of Arts & Sciences in 1999 as a docent learning the history of the collections and touring hundreds of school children through all of the permanent galleries. In 2001, she was offered a position with the Education Department to prepare for the upcoming blockbuster Great Asian Dinosaurs exhibit from Russia, scheduled to open in February 2002. Over the next years, many exciting exhibits were to follow: The Wreck of the Henrietta Marie, The Glories of Ancient Egypt, and Ink and Blood, to name a few. She was enthusiastic about preparing herself to enlighten many children, adults, and group tours about these special exhibits. In addition, Alice enjoyed facilitating over 300 children through the Summer Learning Institute each year. As part of the Education Department, a History Hour Onboard the Hiawatha program was developed. Alice was able to welcome guests on a virtual train ride on the Milwaukee Road’s beaver tail Hiawatha car and local speakers were invited to join and discuss a variety of fascinating topics. Because of their love of history, Alice and her husband Ron have since embraced a book writing career. Over the last ten years they have written and published ten books about Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach history. With Ron’s professional photography and graphic arts skills, they have been able to make their books come alive through both words and pictures. Ron and Alice Howell are preparing to launch their latest book, all about the Root family. This comprehensive book tells the story of the Roots from their design and patent of the iconic Coca-Cola bottle, through four generations of collecting Americana.

SPECIAL SECTION | VOLUNTEERS & VOLUNTEERISM AT MOAS
Volunteers are a tremendous resource for non-profit organizations. Without volunteers, MOAS would not be able to offer the programs we do, raise much needed funds for operations and new exhibitions, or serve our members and guests. The Museum utilizes volunteers throughout all areas of daily operations and could not survive without the unique skills and dedication that they provide.
In this special section, hear from MOAS staff and volunteers about their unique experiences at the Museum...
Monica Mitry, Membership and Volunteer Coordinator MOAS volunteers are an integral part in fulfilling the mission of the Museum. You will find volunteers at the guest services desk assisting with admissions, providing tours to visitors, or helping you make a purchase in the Museum’s gift shop. There are also volunteers that work behind the scenes, such as the General Electric (GE) volunteers who help maintain the Children’s Museum, archivists in the Museum Library, helping hands in the administrative offices, and the Museum’s internship program. As the Volunteer Coordinator, it is my job to make sure that volunteers are welcomed into the family and paired with the right department. Aside from placing volunteers in the different departments, I supervise all volunteers that work within the
administration departments. These volunteers help with digitizing past grants allowing the Director of Development to focus on writing new grants and fundraising for the Museum, while another volunteer catalogs and archives books in the Margaret and John J. Wilkinson Library, providing staff and volunteers with easier access to books for research purposes. Volunteers within the Membership Department assist with different mailings such as membership cards, renewal notices, and invitations. They also assist with selling memberships on First Tuesday and special events. Having volunteers to assist with these positions and tasks allows for MOAS staff to balance the needs of their departments, while helping to achieve the Museum’s mission.
James “Zach” Zacharias, Senior Curator of Education and Curator of History The Museum’s Education Department utilizes volunteers in many capacities that deliver critical and valuable services to the Museum. The docent program is one of our most valuable resources. In French, “docent” means “teacher.” The docents are volunteer teachers that lead educational tours to students and adults alike. They help with the annual Summer Learning Institute, specialty programs, conduct research, and even teach outreach. They connect the general public to the facts and stories of our collection. Docents come from all walks of life, have different life experiences, possess different knowledge sets, and help to build positive community relationships for the Museum. Docents contribute to the vision and experience of the Museum visitor and all of them go through a training program to help them facilitate tours to the public. One common characteristic of the docent staff is a deep passion for art, science, history, and culture. Another volunteer program in the Education Department is our college internship program. Over the last 20 years, we have used college interns from Oxford, Ohio State, Stetson, Bethune Cookman, and a myriad number of other 14 ARTS & SCIENCES MAGAZINE
higher level institutions. The duties of the college internship program are many. Interns research objects for upcoming exhibits and permanent collections. The summer college intern works in the Museum’s Summer Learning Institute with the students, teachers, and in some cases, even teach their own classes. During their three to six months’ time at the Museum, many work on outreach programs, organize educational resources, and give tours to school children. The Museum recommendation letter that comes at the end of their term has proven to be an excellent resumé addition as they move forward in life with higher education and future career goals. Finally, high school volunteers are an essential component of our Summer Learning Institute. Students need to be a minimum of 14 years old or enrolling the incoming school year as a rising 9th grader. The Summer Learning Institute volunteers help the teachers to prepare materials like art supplies, assisting with travelling to and from museum galleries, and ensuring the safety of the students. They also help with student projects, passing out materials, clean-up of the classroom, along with many other functions.
High school Summer Learning Institute volunteering allows teens to build critical thinking and leadership skills while working closely with museum staff. Beyond gaining critical knowledge about informal education for early childhood through elementary school in a museum setting, volunteers learn about specific program content. Becoming a high school volunteer is great for fulfilling community service requirements, resumé-building, and college applications. Volunteers benefit by developing new workplace skills and improving communication skills. They also meet other high school, college, and adult volunteers. Another benefit for these important summer volunteers is the chance to meet and work with museum professionals who can serve as positive role models.
Volunteering is fun, exciting, rewarding, and gives one a sense of accomplishment. Volunteers in the Education Department have the opportunity to gain an immense amount of knowledge about the world around them. The docents, interns, and Summer Learning Institute volunteers are the glue that keep the educational components of the Museum functioning at a high level.
SPECIAL SECTION | VOLUNTEERS & VOLUNTEERISM AT MOAS
The Museum is forever grateful to all of its amazing volunteers. The dedication of this group of people is so important and is a huge contribution to the success of the Museum. During 2016, our MOAS volunteers donated 14,408 hours of service to MOAS and their generosity cannot be overstated. On April 25, 2017 we will thank our MOAS volunteers at the Annual Volunteer Brunch. This year, we will be celebrating six milestone anniversaries with the Museum.

Patti Nikolla, Guest Services Manager The Museum relies heavily on our volunteers as they are a vital part of the ongoing work that happens all across the MOAS campus. Good volunteers enhance the experiences of our guests. Volunteers contribute many hours of service by assisting the Museum in our admissions area, gift shops, and with special events. They all take a particular pride in being helpful to our guests and take their responsibilities very seriously. Many of our volunteers find that donating their time to the Museum is a fun way to remain active in the community.
Tom Davis – MOAS Docent
Often we think of volunteering as a one-way street. A situation where we, the volunteers, give our time (and often our talents) to the satisfaction of the institution’s needs. In my personal experience with MOAS and in the last two years at the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art, the situation is exactly the opposite. The last ten plus years have been an ongoing education and engaging experience that has enriched my life in many ways. It is not only the constant challenge and fun of having to research and become involved in constantly changing exhibits but also the joy of meeting and interacting with people from all around the world. Art has always been my first passion and when the Brown Museum opened, I was in my element. To be a volunteer in the world’s finest museum of Florida art is a privilege, not a job, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity.
Since interning with MOAS two years ago, I have been quite busy pursuing a number of short term positions with the National Park Service. Immediately after concluding my internship with MOAS, I took another internship in Washington, D.C. where I worked at the National Park Service facility called the Museum Resource Center, a storage space for National Park museum collections. There, I cared for and maintained the integrity of the park’s artifacts. After that, I found myself in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where I worked for the Cape Cod National Seashore, again, working with the park’s collections. My experience with MOAS and that National Park Service have played a major role in my decision to pursue a master’s degree in Museum Studies. Through my time working with collections at the National Park Service, I have learned that I enjoy spending time with museum audiences and am focusing my studies on museum education and exhibit development.
I interned with the Museum’s Education Department in the spring of 2015. While interning at MOAS, I assisted the Education Department with various research projects, attended several school science fairs on outreach, and was a docent at the Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art.
16 ARTS & SCIENCES MAGAZINE
I have made many friends at MOAS while working with other volunteers and staff. Being at the Museum is always a pleasure.
I attribute my time at the Museum of Arts & Sciences as the driving force behind my desire to work in museum education. I am hoping that this summer I will be able to intern with the Education Department at the Smithsonian and will also be pursuing a position on an archeology dig in Virginia.
Marion Whelton – MOAS Head Docent
In September of 1987, after our twin daughters headed off to college, my husband John retired as a marketer for Getty Oil Company, and I sold my insurance agency in Maine. Following this, we moved to the Daytona Beach area. A new friend told me that the Museum of Arts & Sciences needed docents. She thought that I might want to volunteer there, as I liked being around people, and was interested in art and history. Little did I know that thirty years later, I would still be leading MOAS visitors through our great museum, helping them to understand and enjoy our many wonderful exhibits. I truly recognize what a privilege it is to be a volunteer docent at MOAS. The education and support that I receive
Shelley Albee – MOAS Intern Spring 2015
from the staff help me to feel confident in my docent duties. I have come to love all of the permanent galleries and I am continually excited by the opportunity to study and learn about each new exhibit. My greatest joy comes from passing on all of the knowledge I learn to each of the MOAS visitors, both young and old. I hope that my enthusiasm encourages them to return, bringing many more friends with them. MOAS outreach programs expand the great impression that we are making throughout Volusia County and now, the new Cici and Hyatt Brown Museum of Art is part of that impression.
Marilynn Sternberg – MOAS Guild
The recent transformation of the existing facilities and the addition of the exciting new attractions and events have made our fine Museum a more outstanding cultural destination than ever before. There may never be a better time or reason to get involved. Our role as volunteers enables us to connect with the community, meet new friends, and make a difference. Working together in a spirit of camaraderie allows us to use skills and talents learned over a lifetime while offering us a host of opportunities to develop new ones. In the process of fundraising, we are not only giving, but receiving, as we enjoy the company and respect of other creative, like-minded volunteers and a sense of pride from our successes. MOAS Guild members “get it done” – and have fun doing it! We invite you to share a little of your time or a lot! You will find that the Guild is a very welcoming bunch.

Sara Arment – MOAS Guest Services & Administrative Volunteer
I was not born and raised in Volusia County, but my family and I would travel down here every summer and school vacation since I was young. In a way, it feels like I did grow up here. No visit would be complete without a trip to the Museum of Arts & Sciences. Growing up as a dancer and a lover of the arts, the Museum was such a fascinating place to me. I loved looking around at the new exhibits as well as the permanent collections that could never bore me. When the Children’s Museum opened I was long past being a child but that did not prevent me from checking that out as well! The Museum is a true gem of Daytona Beach, full of culture, life, and wonderful people that I have met while working here. When I realized that I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Museum during my free time, I jumped at the chance. After an initial meeting and some training, I started helping out at the guest services desk once a week for a couple of hours in the afternoon. My main job was to greet guests when they entered the lobby, man the cash register while they bought their admission, and show them a map of the Museum, pointing out any new exhibits as well as answering any questions that they might have. By doing all of this, the Museum employees at the guest services desk can focus on other administrative tasks that need to be done. My job is especially fun when we have groups of children from schools, since some of them have never been to a museum before. Not long after I started volunteering at MOAS, I was asked to help out with another project that involves digitizing the Museum’s grant documents. I take the Museum’s binders and binders of grant applications and scan everything onto a USB drive and then organize all of the files on the computer. I had experience with this type of work in college, so it did not take me long before I got the hang of it! The arts have always been my passion and being in a museum volunteering during
my free time is exactly where I want to be. I am surrounded by generous, hardworking people that care about the arts and sciences just as much as I do. Being able to help others enjoy their museum experience is the reason that I love being a volunteer.
Allison Zacharias – MOAS Trustee
The Museum is interwoven into the fabric of our community. It is one of the leading cultural institutions in the region because of the community commitment from individuals, businesses, nonprofit groups, and governments. In turn, it enriches the community it serves. Volunteers support the Museum in so many ways, and it is the volunteers who make the Museum wonderful. For me, the Museum has opened the world. As a child I was able to participate in the excavation and recovery of the giant ground sloth. I was about ten years old, and my dad took me to the site at the corner of Reed Canal Road and Nova Road. I recall the pumps draining the water out of the ponds and revealing the bones of extinct ice age animals. I could not believe that these fossils existed under the ground where I stood. I learned that they were not dinosaurs from millions of years ago but mega fauna that roamed Florida around 100,000 years ago. I learned about the natural history of Florida; how the climate cycles through hot and cold temperatures; sea levels rise and fall; and animals migrate as environments change. To this day, fossils are one of my great loves. As a middle schooler, I participated in the summer classes offered by the Museum. This is where I fell in love with Florida. I learned about the natural environments of Florida. Trips to the coast taught me that mangroves function as a nursery for sea life and how vital they are for ocean-going fish and sharks. In particular, I recall a field trip to the Florida Caverns where I learned how the geology of Florida effects things like water-flow, plant-life, and sink-hole formation. As an adult, I returned to Volusia County, and once again, was drawn to the Museum. I have served as a Museum Trustee for many years. Here, I realized how the Museum is a focal point for the art community. The Museum helped me understand the stories behind the paintings and why they are significant. The early American furniture from the Dow Collection represents the craftsmanship of the early colonists but also echoes the stylistic changes from Europe. Likewise, I gained an appreciation for the modern works of 20th century artists.
As a parent, my children have attended the summer programs, volunteered at the Museum, and attended many of its educational offerings. They have met scientists, artists, musicians, and astronauts. Their world is large and more complicated from these experiences, but they understand it better. The Museum has nurtured their curiosity. They continue to ask questions about the world around them and where they can, try to offer answers and solutions. Finally, and probably most importantly, the Museum is about the people I have met and who have influenced me. These are the volunteers who put their time and energy into something they believe in. From the volunteers who kept the water pumps running with the sloth, to the summer assistants who put up with incessant questions from middle schoolers, to the docents who lead the tours, to the GE volunteers who create and fix exhibits in the Children's Museum, to those who advocate for funding, to donors who give of their collections, to those who work at the front desk and museum shop, these are the people who inspire me. These are the people who challenge me. These are the people who make the Museum what it is. Of all the community groups I have served, and of all the volunteer efforts I have made, none have been as fulfilling as my time with the Museum. It has shaped me into the person I am today. It continues to influence and inspire me in so many ways. The most wonderful thing is when I see an adult come back to the Museum and give of their time and energy because it helped shaped them into who they are, and they want to do the same for others. Thank you to all of you.
