The Museum Group
The Museum Group is the volunteer base for the various special events and activities that are organized and run by Windsor's Community Museum. Volunteer members, in cooperation with Museum staff, plan and implement these programs and public activities; staff off-site displays; receive a newsletter; and much, much more!
The Museum Volunteer Group (MVG) meets the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Duff-Baby Interpretation Centre, 221 Mill Street unless otherwise noted. Meetings feature speakers on various topics and are followed by refreshments and a brief business meeting. All are welcome.
MVG annual membership fees are $15.00 for adults and students. Please note that the yearly membership fee is due in February.
