Call for Volunteers

Over the years the Secret Garden Tour has provided more than $1.25 million in support of art education in our public schools. Part of the success has been the dedication and commitment of loyal volunteers. The 2016 “Historic Point” Tour will take place on Friday, June 17, Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. each day. Volunteers work in shifts, acting as ticket-takers, hosts and guides, and providing general information to visitors. In appreciation, volunteers receive a free ticket to tour all of the gardens. To help schedule more than 180 volunteers, volunteers should check personal calendars before signing up so that schedules can be accommodated. To sign up, send an email with name, phone number and choice of sitting time(s) to info@secretgardentours.org.

The shifts are: 10 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and 1:30 - 5 p.m. daily. For additional information, call Donna Maytum, Volunteer Coordinator, 401-439-7253.
