The Westlake Historical Society will offer a training workshop for volunteers of all ages interested in becoming docents for its Clague House Museum and historic sites tour.
What is a docent? A docent is a person who acts as a guide, usually a volunteer, basis, in a museum, art gallery, or zoo.
Docent volunteers receive an overview of Westlake history from the community's founding through present day, covering a number of themes and events.
“During the training we will introduce you to the people who once called Westlake home,” Historical Society President Lysa Stanton said. “The training is meant to be an introduction to our rich history
The trained docents will be asked to make a commitment of helping with at least two tours or open house events per year.
The dates for the workshops are Thursday, April 4, from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. or Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m. - noon. Continental breakfast and light supper will also be provided.
The docent-training workshop is free. Prospective docents should contact Dave Pfister or Lysa Stanton to sign up for the training. Enrollment is limited, and advance registration is required by April 4.
