MUSEUM DOCENT NEEDED – We are in need of a docent (volunteer) to cover the Cape Charles Museum & Welcome Center one Sunday afternoon a month from May through November.  Docents greet visitors, answer their questions, and sell items from the Museum shop. Minimal training is needed. Visits are self guiding, and exhibits are labeled so you don’t need to be an authority on Cape Charles history. If one Sunday a month is too much, find a partner and cover it that way.  If you have a date conflict, one of the other docents will likely switch a date with you. If you care about tourism and local visitors, this is a way to practice it.  For more information call Marion Naar, 757-442-2821. (4/15)
