Coquitlam's Mackin House needs helpers

Mackin House Museum in Coquitlam is on the lookout for a number of volunteers.

The museum, run by the Coquitlam Heritage Society, needs help in the following areas:

• A volunteer is needed to lead tours of historic Maillardville one Saturday per month; if you enjoy the outdoors, meeting people and have an interest in Coquitlam history, this activity is for you. If you can speak English and French, that’s an asset but not a requirement; training is provided.

• Mackin House is looking for a volunteer to provide office administration support one to two afternoons per week; training will be provided.

• And the museum is seeking volunteers for its Bridging Generations project. Local seniors are needed to share their experience and knowledge of traditional arts, crafts, customs and culinary methods with children, youth and new Canadians, among others. If you have a skill to share (e.g., knitting, woodworking, painting, baking) or knowledge to pass down (e.g., history of the railroad or the Coquitlam community), you’re needed. Time commitment is two to four hours and is for one session; all supplies will be provided.

For information on any of these volunteer opportunities, call Gail at 604-516-6151.
