The Navy Museum is accepting applications for volunteer docents for its fall training program. Sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Oct. 4 and will continue into December.
Navy Museum docents conduct tours and lead special programs for school students, community organizations and adult groups. No teaching experience is necessary, but an interest in history and in working with visitors of all ages is recommended.
Volunteers are trained in history, education and interpretation techniques to help them explain to the public the Navy's collection of artifacts and art.
Information can be obtained from Susan Silverstein, the museum's director of education, at 433-4884.
Women who have had mastectomies may view a display of breast forms and prostheses on the first Tuesday of each month from 10 a.m. to noon at the American Cancer Society, Suite 315, 1825 Connecticut Ave. NW. The next display is Tuesday.
Volunteers will be on hand to discuss breast forms and prostheses and where they can be obtained. For information, call 483-2600.
