For those who would like to volunteer as docents at the Tollkeeper’s Cottage
1. What the Museum offers you:
§ The opportunity to learn about the history of our roads, and of one of the oldest tollgate cottages (circa 1835) surviving anywhere in Canada, and its surrounding neighbourhood.
§ The chance to improve your public speaking and interpretive skills.
§ The occasion to work a fine group of dedicated volunteers in a convivial setting..
§ The chance to help preserve local history by educating visitors to the Cottage
2. What the Museum asks of you:
§ To learn about the Cottage with the help of our docents, and our library of information. We have lots of interesting reading material!
§ It would be great if you could make your own ‘period dress’ (we don’t call it a costume!), but lots of help is available! Don’t be put off if this is not in your skill set!
§ To spend about one Saturday a month shadowing the present docents, until you are ready to lead tours of the museum on your own.
