Volunteering and More


Dear Fellow Members of Seaford Historical Society,

We are sorry to report that our Executive Director, Amanda Goebel will be leaving our employment at the end of this year. We have enjoyed her occupancy of the office and will miss her willingness to do all things we ask of her and with a smile 99% of the time. We wish her all the best as she pursues other interests and thank her for being a part of our lives.
That said, we are seeking an individual to take this 28 hour a week position that might require some weekends and evenings We are primarily seeking an office person with experience who is comfortable with our computer systems, Quicken and Past Perfect ,credit card activity and has a knowledge of bookkeeping. We are hoping this individual will be able to shadow Amanda during the month of December so the transition will be smooth for all. To be considered, applicants should submit a cover letter stating qualifications/references and a resume. A detailed listing of job duties is available through the link to the right.
If you or someone you know may be interested in this part time position, please contact either me at 628-0312 or mthrhutton@comcast.net, or Aileen Watkins at 302-930-7070 or AileenandBill@hotmail.com; Maria Heyssel at 628-0954 0r MariaHeyssel@aol.com.
Thank you and a very Happy Holiday Season to you.

Seaford Historical Society volunteers make all the difference. Unlike other historical societies, volunteers here do everything.  Volunteer hours are also important in that they are submitted with applications for grants.  All of the docents at both the Seaford Museum and Ross Mansion are volunteers. We provide training for both locations.  

Other committees that always need volunteers are:


  • Buildings and Grounds 
  • Education
  • Fundraising
  • Exhibits
  • Events (e.g., Teas, Victorian Christmas)
  • Membership

 We are proud of what we have accomplished, but we can always use more help, your talents, your encouragement, and your financial support. Please complete the contact form on this page or call the society’s office to volunteer and help out wherever you can.

Every year the Society hosts a Volunteer Appreciation Reception.  Those who have volunteered during that year are invited to this reception.   Additionally, during our Annual Membership Meeting the Society honors a volunteer who has gone over and above for the Mansion, Museum and Overall Volunteer of the Year.
