The Sycamore History Museum has rescheduled the junior docent program training information class originally set for April 9 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at 1730 N. Main St., in Sycamore.
A docent gives tours to museum visitors, leads craft activities during summer programs, and may even be involved in some Youtube videos sharing interesting stories about Sycamore history. Training participants will learn about the upcoming exhibit, “General Dutton’s America,” which explores Sycamore history from 1840 (only 242 people were here) through 1900 (population grew to 3,600). There will be a hands-on room where junior docents, along with younger visitors, can play in a soldier’s tent and send messages using a telegraph. Summer opportunities also will be discussed. Junior docents can be in fifth grade through high school.
Participants will be trained and receive a T-shirt. Parents are encouraged to attend, but not required. To sign up or for more information, call 815-895-5762 or send firstname.lastname@example.org.
