Calling All Volunteers!
2017 will bring about a new concept in sitting at the Center. We will be putting together a team of professional docents to watch over the Center during our exhibits. These docents will be trained in everything they should know about running the Center and being a welcoming representative behind the reception desk. Organizations can also have their members keep our professional docents company, if they so wish. We will need to fill thirty 3-hour shifts during each of our exhibits. So think about joining our team and immerse yourself in all that creative energy at the Center!
