Wanted: Delta storytellers

Delta Museum is seeking docents to bring history to life.

The Delta Museum is looking for talented storytellers.

From the First Nations to the early pioneers, Delta’s rich history and cultural heritage is housed in the 1912 Tudor-style building on Delta Street in Ladner.

Each year visitors from all around the world visit and discover Delta’s story through photos, educational programs, collections and exhibits.

Helping to bring this history to life for today’s generation of children are the volunteers of the Delta Museum, which is now recruiting for new docents.

Are you interested in history? Do you enjoy storytelling? Are you comfortable speaking in front of an audience? Can you engage the enthusiasm of kids while leading historically themed children’s education programs? Do you have some spare time?

If the answer is yes, perhaps you would be an ideal candidate to become a volunteer docent.

The Delta Museum and Archives Society is looking for dedicated and resourceful volunteers with all sorts of talents, skills and backgrounds who can commit to 2.5 hours per week at the museum during the school year.

All necessary training is provided to help you become a lively storyteller of Delta’s fascinating heritage.

Here’s your opportunity to get involved in your community, meet new people, become part of a dynamic team, share your talent and set your own schedule.

For further information, contact the Delta Museum and Archives Society’s volunteer coordinator at 604-946-9322, visit www.deltamuseum.ca or attend an information session at the DMAS Annex building (4918 Delta Street) on Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 3-4 p.m.

Call to confirm attendance.

The Delta Museum is located at 4858 Delta St., and is open Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
