Cave Creek Museum seeks volunteers

The Cave Creek Museum seeks volunteers for myriad tasks.

“We are very busy this season and need more people,” says Evelyn Johnson, executive director. “For volunteers, it is fun and interesting work and a great opportunity to learn about the exhibits and the museum’s famed history. Our volunteers love spending time here.”

Johnson says the museum is looking for volunteers to: develop educational plans for the museum website and lesson plans for students and homeschoolers; perform administrative duties; to serve as docents (volunteers who guide people through the museum and answer questions); database entry; answering phones and more. Some of the tasks to be completed will be at the museum and others can be done remotely. Interested volunteers can learn more at

“I read articles about Cave Creek Museum in local publications and decided to get involved as a fun way to learn more,” says Karen Bullard, museum docent. “Being a volunteer is enjoyable as a learning experience, plus I get to know more local people and meet museum visitors from out of the area.”

“There are so many tasks to accomplish – calendar planning, fundraising and mailings to say nothing of the exhibit changes that continually take shape,” says Johnson. “If you can help make change happen, please send an email to or call 480.488.2764. It also is a great way to meet new friends and contacts.”

The 53-year-old museum’s mission is to preserve the artifacts of the prehistory, history, culture and legacy of the Cave Creek Mining District and the Cave Creek/Carefree foothills area through education, research, and interpretive exhibits.

First Sunday Music

To mark the beginning of Advent this coming Sunday, December 3, the choir will present new choral works by the living Swiss composer Ivo Antognini at both the 9:00am and 11:15am worship services. Known for writing music in a diversity of styles—jazz, film scores, and choral works—Antognini possesses a unique voice, weaving together lush harmonies and surging rhythms into works as memorable as they are moving. The choir will also collaborate with saxophonist Chris Herald to sing movements from James Whitbourn’s atmospheric Son of God Mass. Saint Philip’s in the Hills strives to bring the finest quality choral music to its worship services by incorporating substantial works directly into the liturgy. Every first Sunday of the month (October-May), the choirs present such an offering at the 9:00am and 11:15am services, often with instrumental accompaniment. We hope you’ll join us this Sunday to experience this wonderful music in a liturgical context.
