Thank you, volunteers! We appreciate your dedication and commitment.
As a result of over 4,000 annual volunteer hours, the Langley Centennial Museum offers many programs that otherwise would not be possible. Volunteers are an integral part of the functioning of the museum from school programs and parades to community events.
They lead hands-on activities that make our special events fun for visitors. These events include:
- Family Day Event
- Easter Sunday
- May Day Parade in Fort Langley
- Canada Day
- Culture Days
- Halloween Event
- Pioneer Christmas
- Fundamental to the Development of the Museum: Before the museum even opened it doors, volunteers played a key role. The museum's collection was started in the 1920's by volunteers. Over 25 years ago, volunteers started our school programs
- Docents, Mainstay of our School Programs: Every year more than 40 volunteers provide museum tours and programs for school children. These volunteer educators, called docents, commit three hours per week for much of the school year to deliver the programs and attend special training programs throughout the year. Over 5,000 school children came to the museum in 2000 to attend programs given by these enthusiastic and skilled volunteers.
- Perform a Variety of Different Jobs: Volunteers perform many other vital jobs in the museum. They help with typing, folding and stuffing, sewing, preparing educational materials, parades, fairs, special events, collection and exhibit work, and more.
