2009 Young Interpreters

Gwen Miner, Supervisor of Domestic Arts Congratulations to this year’s group of Young Interpreters! On Thursday, September 17, we held the annual Young Interpreter potluck dinner in Bump Tavern. This dinner concludes the summer-long program for the Young Interpreters. Nine of the eleven participants were present. The Young Interpreters and their immediate families join their mentors for a meal, conversation, a show and tell of the Interpreters’ summer work, and the presentation of certificates.
2009 was a successful season for both the Young Interpreters and the museum staff who mentored these amazing young folks. Our seasoned senior staff members were continuously impressed with the depth of interest that these young folks had in the areas where they were apprenticed and the skills that they developed over the summer.
We hope to continue to see these fantastic young folks as volunteers and even future staff members.
