The Friends of Mother Jones Museum Recruitment

The Friends of Mother Jones Museum Recruitment 

The Friends of Mother Jones Museum, located in the Mt. Olive IL, city hall building at 215 East Main St., is searching for volunteers to assist with promoting, improving, or simply maintaining the museum honoring the legendary Irish firebrand Mother Jones, who is buried in nearby Union Miners Cemetery, the only union-owned cemetery in the USA. Board Chairperson Juli Caveny said, “Our current board is shrinking as our volunteer base ages, and our challenges mount. We are sad to report that as our former active volunteers can no longer assist, nobody has stepped up to take their place. We are approaching a point where we will no longer be able to properly honor Mother Jones, who asked to be buried in UMC due to an 1898 gun battle in Virden, IL, where locked-out UMWA members died in a gun battle with mine guards. When her casket arrived in 1930, it was greeted by 50,000 kindred spirits. We need some of that energy and adoration of her to continue today. Interested parties are asked to attend our next meeting, December 11, at noon inside city hall”. For further information, please contact James Goltz at 618 585 4400 or

New in 2023, we will be offering several “Members Only” events in addition to all our free public events. We offer two types of membership, Illinois Audubon Society and a “Friend of Bremer”. The Illinois Audubon Society was organized as an independent, statewide, educational and scientific organization, incorporated April 10, 1897 by the State of Illinois. They are the oldest nonprofit, conservation organization in Illinois. Our mission is “to promote the perpetuation and appreciation of native flora and fauna of Illinois and the habitats that support them.” A basic Illinois Audubon Society membership starts at $25 per year and you can designate Hickory Hills Chapter for an additional $10.00, that way you will also receive all of Bremer newsletters and event invitations. IAS Members will receive quarterly issues of Illinois Audubon magazine and invitations to many statewide field trips. Dues are paid directly to Illinois Audubon and dues reminders are mailed from them as well. You may find membership information on the Illinois Audubon website, A “Friend of Bremer” is a membership to receive all of the sanctuary’s e-versions of our quarterly newsletter, invitations to our events and programs. A “Friend” is not eligible to hold an office or have voting power in the chapter. A fee of $10.00 is due each January and should be sent to: Hickory Hills Chapter, P.O. Box 395, Hillsboro, IL 62049. Please provide an email with payment in order to receive correspondence. Bremer Sanctuary is located one-half mile north of the Montgomery County Courthouse in Hillsboro, Illinois. 194 Bremer Lane, Hillsboro, IL is the physical address, (we do not accept mail with this address,
