This will also require extra help with recycling. If anyone is interested in volunteering, please contact Cheryl Coulter at 238-5923 or e-mail email@example.com.

Basically, a volunteer commitment involves an occasional shift (based on your availability) of about three hours where you would "monitor" one of the floors of the exhibit space: chat up visitors, assist children with art activities, and serve as a front-line ambassador for the city of Danville as you welcome the multitudes of visitors coming from across the state and beyond! Contact our Volunteer Coordinator Marti Dickerson at 606-669-1239 or e-mail email@example.com. Thank you for your continued support of the CAC and this outstanding exhibit!
