More Peas

August 5, 2009

Obviously I am not the world’s best blogger.  I get busy and forget and a lot of the things I do in the course of the day just aren’t that thrilling.  Lately there has been a lot of paperwork.  But, since there is no rule that says I have to be directly involved in everything I blog about I find that I do have plenty of material.  For now I will introduce the last of the new peas in our pod so that everyone is present and accounted for.

P7310066First is Nicole Mailloux joined us in the last week of June.  She goes to  at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo and has a double major in english and history.

P7220007Hillary Smith is an MSS student returning for her second year at Huronia Museum.  Tara B. is a Penetanguishene Secondary School student who is with us for the first time this summer.

All of our peas are very busy this summer greeting visitors, looking after our day campers, giving tours and answering questions.  They are all very nice, enthusiastic people who are anxious to help, so please come and visit us and give them a chance to share their newly acquired knowledge.  They all wear blue t-shirts so they are easy to spot.

The Unofficial Peas

June 9, 2009

Every summer Huronia Museum brings on a new batch of summer students to help us out through the busy tourist season.  In fact, our small staff usually doubles in size from June through August.

These students become the Unofficial Peas.  The Pod is a homebase of sorts.  A hub for all summer student activities.  Nahanni, our administrator and the other official Pea, and I interview, introduce and train these “baby peas” if you will.  Since these baby peas are such an important part of our summer operations I felt it was only right to dedicate a little blog space to them.  These guys work very hard throughout the summer delivering tours, running the day camp, keeping things tidy and handling the retail operations on the weekends.  Some of the jobs they do are not particularly exciting, but they do them and they do them well so I thought they deserved a little recognition. 

My last two posts were to introduce them, but throughout the summer I will do updates on some of the interesting project they are working on.
