If you want to show off your hometown knowledge, officials in Port Deposit have the perfect job for you.
They are gearing up for the second season, and first full season of the Visitor Center at the Tome Gas House in Port Deposit. Friendly people are needed who will volunteer to welcome visitors to the area and Port Deposit. Those volunteers will staff the circa 1850 Tome Gas House and answer questions from guests from near and far.
The center will open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. beginning in late April or early May. The hours are flexible and those who sign on can volunteer as much or as little as they wish. In order to volunteer, you need to be at least 21 years of age and undergo a background check.
The town will provide training. In addition to staff for the visitor center, the town is also looking for displays for the visitor center.
They currently have displays regarding the Northern Map turtle and town mascot Rhonda. There is a Paw Paw Museum and a Bainbridge display. Others with local interest are wanted.
