Elgin History Museum

Today was my first official 5-hour shift as a volunteer docent at the Elgin History Museum. It was so much fun! The staff and other volunteers are super welcoming. And the museum is stuffed to the brim with interesting exhibits and materials.

I shadowed an experienced volunteer and we spent several hours setting up for tomorrow’s Annual Holiday Tea event. It’s going to be a large gathering with yummy desserts, a gift shop sale, and historian Linda Rock giving her “An Elgin Christmas” presentation.

This is going to be a wonderful place to volunteer. All their behind-the-scenes storage rooms completely intrigue me. I’m so excited for the coming year!
