Celebrating Seniors Making a Difference
Ontario Senior’s Month
June is Ontario Senior’s Month. Throughout the month Ontarians have been encouraged to celebrate seniors making a difference.
Many of the volunteers at Glanmore are seniors. Here are just a few vibrant seniors that make a difference at Glanmore National Historic Site:
Elsie is a welcoming presence at our museum reception desk. Her sunny ways and charming Scottish brogue make her a hit with museum visitors.
Rae volunteers as a museum docent. She is continually learning about Glanmore and the artifacts in our museum collections. Here she is seen giving a reguided tour to a group of Red Hat Ladies.
Lindi calls herself a “Data Diva.” For the past year she has been volunteering about once a week to input information about artifacts collection into our collections records database. She is always amazed at the variety of artifacts in our regional collection.
Shirley works to research and catalogue artifacts in our collection. She enjoys the challenge of research and is always learning new things while she volunteers at Glanmore. The notes she make about artifacts will eventually be added to our collections records database.
Thousands of volunteer hours are contributed to Glanmore each year by vibrant seniors just like these. Staff at Glanmore send out a big thanks to all of our senior volunteers for their time and effort to make Glanmore the welcoming and interesting cultural resource that it is!
