May 11, 1;30-4:30pm  Telephone Museum Tour Guides training. Do you care about STEM education? The Telephone Museum in North Ellsworth gives students and others an historical perspective of telecommunications through real, interactive, working exhibits. It helps them understand the giant leap from analog to digital systems and the importance of STEM education to invention and industry. The Telephone Museum eagerly seeks enthusiastic Tour Guides to share the stories and demonstrate the exhibits. BONUS: If you sign up as a Tour Guide for four days this summer, we will give you a FREE 2018 Family Membership (a $50. value)! If you can’t make the training session on the 11th, we’ll be powering-up the exhibits and welcoming new volunteers on Saturday, May 19th. For more information, including directions visit
