In celebration of National Volunteer Month, Norfolk County Heritage & Culture cordially invites you to our third annual Volunteer Drive on Saturday, April 25, 2020.  This will be a fun, interactive and FREE bus tour through the county, with stops at each of the museums in Waterford, Delhi, and Port Dover, as well as the Norfolk County Archives & Eva Brook Donly Museum and the Norfolk Arts Centre in Simcoe.

Volunteers are an essential and valuable resource to our organization. We have a wide range of opportunities available, everything from gardening to exhibit construction to working with our collections.  We want to match your needs and interests to ours and ensure that your volunteer experience is rewarding!

Stops at our sites will allow you to experience firsthand the work we do in our communities.  If you are interested in learning more about us or becoming a member of our volunteer team then jump on board our Volunteer Drive.

This self-guided driving tour through Waterford and Townsend highlights the vanishing built agricultural history of our countryside. The tour will begin at the Waterford Heritage & Agricultural Museum where participants will be able to view the museum and pick up route maps, then continue on to 6 historic barns in the area.

This event is currently in development. When we have more details, ticket prices, etc. we will happily share that information here, so please check back later for more details.

Please note: Our museum is wheelchair accessible and has public and accessible washrooms. The other stops along the tour are NOT wheelchair accessible and washroom facilities will not be available.

This a fundraising event in partnership with the Waterford & Townsend Historical Society.

Canadians during the Second World War answered the call in more ways than one! While soldiers fought and nurses tended the wounded overseas, the Canadian Red Cross and Women’s Institutes across our country rallied together to feed war ravaged Great Britain, launching the hugely successful Jam for Britain campaign.

Join us at WHAM as Samantha George, Curator of Parkwood Estate National Historic Site in Oshawa, ON, and Vice President of the Culinary Historians of Canada, provides a glimpse into the home front tenacity - peeled, chopped, stewed down, and preserved into 4lbs tins. Samantha previously participated in Field kitchen and Trench Foods demonstrations at Vimy100 commemorations in France in 2017.
