It takes many people to accomplish the work required to maintain a community museum.  Our devoted volunteers provide assistance at museum events, help conduct school programs, and work behind the scenes.

We are currently reviewing all volunteer opportunities available and anticipate rolling out a revamped volunteer program in the future.   Currently, we primarily use volunteers during the Lambton Fall Colour & Craft Festival and our “Child’s First Christmas in Canada” program.

 

The Lambton Fall Colour & Craft Festival

The Lambton Fall Colour & Craft Festival is always held on the weekend immediately following Canadian Thanksgiving, in October.

Volunteers help by:

  • Taking admissions
  • Taking cash in the outdoor food booth at the Lambton Heritage Museum or indoor site at the Legacy Recreation Centre in Thedford
  • Cooking and serving food in the food booths.

The “Child’s First Christmas in Canada” Program

The “Child’s First Christmas In Canada” program, which is for students in grades K to 4, begins the last Wednesday in November and runs until the third Wednesday of December. During the Child’s First Christmas In Canada program over 1000 elementary school children visit the Lambton Heritage Museum Mondays to Fridays from 10am to 2pm.
Volunteers are needed to:

  • Make Candles
  • Drive Tractor
  • Help with Crafts
  • Clean-up workstations
  • Serve Cider and Christmas pudding as Mr. or Mrs. Tudhop in the pioneer home.

 

Training and historical background will be provided to all volunteers.

If you are interested in either of the two above opportunities please contact us.  Let us know what you may be interested in doing and how best to contact you.  We will be in touch later in the fall to discuss the opportunities available.
