Rokeby seeks volunteers

FERRISBURGH - The historic Rokeby Museum celebrates volunteers every April- National Volunteer Month-with an orientation session for new recruits. Join us on Saturday, April 16 at 10 a.m. to check out the opportunities. Volunteering at Rokeby offers a unique opportunity for personal education and service rolled into one.

New guides will complete a brief training course that introduces them to the remarkable Quaker family that called Rokeby home and the 200 years of history they lived here. Volunteers study historic photographs, documents, art, and artifacts from the Museum's extensive collection and then share what they have learned with visitors, working two tour days per month during the season (Memorial Day weekend to Columbus Day weekend). Rokeby Museum is a 90-acre historic site and National Historic Landmark designated for its exceptional Underground Railroad history.

For more information, e-mail Jane Williamson at: rokeby@comcast.net. Rokeby Museum is located at 4334 Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
