Adam Davis Returns to the TCPM
Saturday January 28, 2017 at 1 pm.
One of our favorite presenters, Adam Davis, returns for a record third time to the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum on Saturday, January 28 at 1:00 PM. Adam will be leading an Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project entitled “From Saving to Serving: On Intervening in the Lives of Others.”
As volunteers, we often find making a positive difference in the world can be difficult. Using the word “Charity” sometimes sounds admirable to some but offensive to others. Adam will help us explore why it is so difficult to find the right words for the good work we try to do to help others. How should we think about our efforts to make positive changes? Join this free discussion –sponsored by Oregon Humanities and hosted by TCPM - in the Main Gallery at the Pioneer Museum.
Davis is the Executive Director of Oregon Humanities. In his previous role as director of the Center for Civic Reflection, Davis designed and implemented “Justice Talking/The Meaning of Service,” a nationwide discussion program for AmeriCorps, VISTA, and other service organizations. Davis has given keynotes and published articles on service, volunteering, and leadership, and facilitated workshops at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future. For more information about this free community discussion, please contact TCPM at 503.842.4553 or

Tillamook Coast History Alliance
In April, 2015, a group of Tillamook County museums formed the Tillamook Coast History Alliance to help promote our venues
to the rest of the state and beyond. We are now able to post events on a calendar on the site as well as give short descriptions of what our collections have to offer.
Pioneer Museum seeks Volunteers
The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum is accepting applications for volunteer work at the Pioneer Museum as well as at the Kilchis Point Interpretive Trails site in Bay City. Possible positions at the museum include front desk personnel, substitutes for the front desk, docents for tours, research, and typing and filing. Duties at the Kilchis site will be clearing trails, weeding the trailhead locations, and removing invasive plants.
“We do our best to match our volunteers to the tasks
that need to be done,” said Ruby Fry-Matson, the museum’s Volunteer
Coordinator. “We want everyone to have a positive experience and enjoy
the time spent with us. We treasure our volunteers and couldn’t run
this museum without them.”

appointment for an interview, contact Ruby at 503-842-4553 or
