Volunteers

Over the years, the Morrin Centre team had successfully completed many projects thanks to the assistance, dedication and know-how of our volunteers. New and recurring activities offer volunteers the opportunity to develop their passions and meet members of the community. Come join our team of dynamic volunteers!

Your involvement as a volunteer can vary considerably, ranging from participation in a single, “once-off” event to a recurring task for a specific project. Tasks can include:

Participation in events: We regularly need assistance with the logistics of cultural activities held at the Centre. Here’s a way for you to use your talents to contribute to the Centre’s programs and events.

Library services: We rely on the generosity of volunteers to greet library members and visitors and to handle the library desk services. The library is a relaxing setting that will allow you to better acquaint yourself with our impressive collection of books and share your passion for literature with all our visitors.

Committees: Have you ever thought about taking part in one of the Morrin Centre’s committees? Once you decide to get involved, you’ll discover a world of possibilities. You’ll also significantly expand your networking opportunities and be able to add your personal touch to the Society. It’s a very special way of supporting the Society. Our committees include: the LHSQ Council, the Fundraising Committees, and the Book Committee. The contribution of volunteers constitutes the very backbone of the Morrin Centre.

Publication: Would you like to write an article and see it published in the Society Pages, the quarterly publication of the LHSQ? Please let us know!

Educational programs: Those who enjoy working with children and school groups can contribute to preparing and leading activities. It’s a truly gratifying form of involvement.
