Join our Team — Member of the Board of Directors

Volunteers contribute to every aspect and activity that happens at Community Waterfront Heritage Centre (CWHC). One of the most important aspects to the health and sustainability of CWHC is getting enthusiastic people to serve on our Board.

Community Waterfront Heritage Centre is seeking people who are interested in being Directors on our Board.

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance and accountability of CWHC. Their responsibilities are to establish and maintain CWHC’s vision, mission, strategic priorities and overall direction. Directors attend Board meetings, which are held approximately eleven times per year, and an Annual General Meeting in the Spring.

Board members participate in deliberations by asking questions, expressing views and suggestions, making or seconding motions and voting. Board members volunteer to perform other duties for the Board; for example, serve as an Officer, undertake a special project, represent the Board on a committee or an external body, assist in fund raising, etc. The Board of Directors act as ambassadors for CWHC in the community.

Christmas Cafe aboard Coach #4884

The Community Waterfront Heritage Centre (CWHC) welcomes visitors to the family friendly CHRISTMAS CAFE on Saturday November 17, 2018, from 9 AM until 2 PM.

Seasonal treats, (hot chocolate, coffee, hot cider & Christmas cookies), will be served by CWHC volunteers on board historic 1953 Coach #4884, with a special guest appearance by “Mrs. Claus” between 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM.

The 1932 CN station will be decked out for the holidays with the model train layouts and museum displays, including the 2018 exhibit “Fish Tales”, celebrating Owen Sound’s rich fishing heritage, available. Children can enjoy interactive activities, a museum scavenger hunt, and ‘make & take’ holiday crafts.

Admission is $2 per child, $3 per adult and includes a hot drink & treat. This is a fundraiser for CWHC and all admission proceeds support the general operation of the museum.

The GEORGIAN BAY GARDEN CLUB will be onsite selling wreaths and urn inserts. These stunning original designs by members of the Georgian Bay Garden Club are natural live greens and materials. This is a major fundraiser for the club, and the public is encouraged to support this initiative, so that they may continue with their many garden beautification projects around the city.

*Please be aware that due to the historic nature of CN Coach #4884 it is not fully accessible.*
