Docent Updates and Requests

Hi Docents!


A few updates, requests, and reminders. You’ll notice some requests are URGENT!



·         Canceled Tour—The WWU Alumni Tour that was scheduled for July 18th has been moved to October 17th. On the event calendar there were no docents listed, but I wanted to let you all know in case anyone had signed up with Kara and I hadn’t heard about it. If you were signed up for this tour, you might consider leading one of the tours below instead.

·         Docent Training, July 22nd, 10:30-12pm—Barbara Johns will be presenting on Fujii, Nomura, and Tokita specifically related to their work during wartime, in conjunction with our Roger Shimomura exhibition.

·         Trends Watch—I have attached the Trends Watch Report we discussed briefly at the last training. It is a great resource for anyone interested in museums.
