Museum Docent Opportunity at Milton Historical Society Begins November 4
The Milton Historical Society is seeking both new and long-time residents of the region to serve as museum docents at its LydiaBlackCannonMuseum in historic downtown Milton. Docents are the museum hosts who welcome visitors and act as guides and interpreters of the exhibit. Since the museum re-opened in April 2006, more than seventy people have participated in docent training and now volunteer regularly.
The docent training program is a great way to learn about the fascinating history of the area, as well as how to share that knowledge with visitors to the museum. If you are a friendly person who loves meeting new people, learning and sharing, this important volunteer position is for you.
As hosts and guides, docents make an important contribution to the vitality of the museum. Without docents the museum could not be open on a regularly scheduled basis. The museum is often the first stop for visitors to Milton, and so the museum docents also help visitors discover all the many other attractions in the town and in the area.
