Cof­fee and cake for Colby vol­un­teers

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Vol­un­teers of the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum had a chance to get to­gether for tea, cof­fee and a spe­cial cake in the mu­seum’s beau­ti­ful so­lar­ium dur­ing Vol­un­teer Week, last Fri­day. “It is the first time that we’ve done some­thing dur­ing Vol­un­teer Week in many years, but we’d like to do it reg­u­larly to rec­og­nize the work and ded­i­ca­tion of our vol­un­teers,” said Chloe Southam, the Mu­seum’s di­rec­tor.

The Mu­seum is look­ing for more vol­un­teers of all ages. “We don’t just put vol­un­teers where needed, it de­pends on the in­ter­ests of the vol­un­teers. Some pre­fer to vol­un­teer in the bou­tique, in the ar­chives, oth­ers for up­com­ing events like our Easter Egg Hunt. We’d re­ally like to see stu­dents and young people vol­un­teer, too. I’m con­cerned about young people and the amount of in­ter­est they have in her­itage and cul­ture. I’d like to awaken that in young people,” added Ms. Southam
