Task Overview: Find tidbits of news in local historical newspapers and other sources, find a photo related to the story, and post it to the Museum’s Facebook page as part of our ongoing “On This Day” feature. News stories are very random – everything from major events like fires and floods to “Johnny Dortman caught a fish.” You can go with the randomness (because it’s fun), or you can link posts to annual holidays, national “days” or “weeks” (such as International Women’s Day, or Fire Prevention Week), or other themes if you want.
Job Type: Ongoing
Suitable for: Individuals / Job-Sharing
Schedule: Two hours per week each week, or several hours all at once. Facebook lets us schedule posts up to six months in advance, so scheduling can be very flexible.
Requirements: Basic ability to use computer equipment; good typing and/or proofreading abilities. You do not need your own Facebook account – you can use ours!
