Wolcott Museum Complex Seeks Docents
The Wolcott Museum is in need of docents to guide tours through the complex buildings. Docents are needed two to four hours on Saturdays and Sundays and on some weekdays for school visits. Training will begin next month.
This is a volunteer position, but those who participate are welcome to attend the many social events that take place at the complex.
This is a perfect opportunity for a retired schoolteacher, or for someone who enjoys sharing education.
Those interested in becoming a docent may call the museum at (419) 893-9602 or e-mail Kathy Dowd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
