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
  • Inviting visitors to fill out a survey and enter a draw for a door prize at our Information Booth.

The Child’s First Christmas in Canada Program

This school program is for students in grades kindergarten to grade 4. It begins the last week in November and runs until the third Wednesday of December. During the Child’s First Christmas In Canada program, over 1,000 elementary school children visit the Lambton Heritage Museum throughout the week between 10am and 2pm.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Drive the 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 our Volunteer Coordinator, Amy Fennell, at amy.fennell@county-lambton.on.ca or call her at 519-243-2600.  Let us know what you may be interested in doing and how best to contact you.  We will be in touch to discuss the opportunities available.
