ZOOM Volunteer Orientation Breakfast!

Sat February 20 at 9:00 AM

Saturday February 20 2021 09:00 AM

Calling all volunteers! Adena Mansion & Gardens will be hosting a ZOOM Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, February 20 at 9:00 am. Returning volunteers, or anyone interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities at Adena Mansion & Gardens, are invited to attend.

Adena relies on the generosity of its volunteers and numerous opportunities are available for anyone interested in participating in the volunteer program. Some volunteers enjoy dressing in period costume and interpreting the Mansion, Tenant House or Barn while others prefer to answer questions in the Museum, work with school groups, or pitch in “behind the scenes.” Volunteers with a green thumb prefer to be outside in the sunshine, getting their hands dirty in the garden. Different positions require varying levels of training and time commitments so there is something that will appeal to everyone!

During the orientation, volunteers will learn about Adena and the Worthington family discover all about the unique volunteer opportunities and sign up for training. So join us with your breakfast for our Zoom Volunteer Orientation.

Please register for this event by calling (740) 772-1500, online at www.adenamansion.com/tickets, or via email at info@adenamansion.com
