Volunteers Sought for Grey Towers’ Organization
The Grey Towers Heritage Association, the non-profit organization that supports public and community programs at Grey Towers National Historic Site, Milford, PA, is seeking new members for its volunteer Board of Directors.
The Board seeks volunteers who have a background or interest in conservation and the environment; history and architecture; landscape preservation; community outreach and visitor services; marketing and public relations, fundraising or an interest in making our community a bit better.
The volunteer board meets monthly at the historic estate and plans its support for such popular programs at the ice cream social, Screen on the Green free family films, Festival of Wood, Community Appreciation Day, Edgar Allan Poe and Christmas Carol dramatic readings and much, much more. The organization, formed in 2007, also supports activities on the adjoining Milford Experimental Forest, education programs with area schools, forest landowner programs with regional organizations and the Grey Towers internship and Scholar in Residence programs.
In addition to volunteer board members, the GTHA is seeking persons from the community who might want to serve on a committee or as a volunteer. Committee members and volunteers enjoy participating in the organization without the monthly commitment of board membership. All are critical members of the GTHA organization.
For more information about the GTHA and to request an application for any of the Board positions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 570-296-9625.
