How time flies! It seems like just yesterday (even though it was early September) that the third class of docents began their training here at the museum. They graduated as full-fledged docents on Wednesday — and just in time!
Docents, docents-in-training and volunteers alike have been hard at work filling volunteer positions associated with the Lincoln exhibits. The graduating class will have their first chance to officially volunteer as docents during the Going Green festival here at the Indiana State Museum in late March, where they will staff an activity about water turbidity (turbid: deficient in clarity or purity according to Webster). A few of them will get to try their hand at giving an Architecture Tour to a group of museum visitors. And as bookings for tours continue to pick up as the weather (hopefully) improves, they will all get a turn at leading tours.
Congratulations to Steve, Barbara, Larry, Bob, Glenda, Donna, April, Herb and Robert!
