Submitted by Lewis County Board of County Commissioners

The Lewis County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is seeking a volunteer to represent the county on the Lewis County Historical Museum Board.

The Lewis County Historical Museum serves as the steward of the area’s rich history, providing collections, exhibits, preservation endeavors, public programs and volunteer opportunities to nurture a broader appreciation for – and understanding of – Lewis County’s past. The Historical Museum Board helps guide the museum’s efforts, and the county’s representative is a voting member who also serves as a liaison regarding maintenance needs for the county-owned building.

The Historical Museum Board – which also includes representatives from the cities of Chehalis and Centralia among others – meets at 5 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month. The ideal candidate to represent Lewis County on the board will have an interest in local history and a penchant for volunteering. Some experience in building maintenance would be an appreciated bonus.

Individuals interested in representing the county on the Historical Museum Board should submit an application and a letter of interest to BOCC Clerk of the Board Rieva Lester in one of the following three ways:

  • By mail at 351 N.W. North St., Chehalis, WA 98532.
  • Via email at Committees@LewisCountywa.gov (include Historical Society in the subject line).
  • In-person at the Commissioners’ Office in Room 210 of the historic courthouse at 351 N.W. North St. in Chehalis.

Applications are due by 3 p.m. Thursday, February 24, 2022. Application packets are available online.
