For the last 52 years, the Ann Arrundell County Historical Society has sought to preserve the cultural treasures of the County by maintaining the historic Benson-Hammond House in Linthicum and the Kuethe Historical and Genealogical Research Center in Glen Burnie. Students interested in pursuing a course of studies in museum or library sciences will obtain valuable experience by working with others trained in those fields.
High School age (or older) volunteers are needed to guide visitors through the Benson-Hammond House and interpret the collection of 19th century truck farming and household implements. The House is open on Saturdays from 11am to 3pm and Sundays from 12 noon to 3pm from March through November. Volunteers are asked to commit to one shift per month.
The Kuethe Historical and Genealogical Research Library holds literally thousands of books, documents, maps, photographs and other records of Anne Arundel County history. Volunteers are needed to help catalog and digitize collections, assist visitors with their research and accession new donations. The library is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm and volunteers are asked to commit to one 6-hour shift per month.
Other opportunities are available to help in special events or to contribute to our quarterly publication, History Notes. If you are interested, please contact Becky Morris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tennis Alliance of Anne Arundel County
The Tennis Alliance of AACo is a nonprofit community tennis organization accredited with the AACo Department of Recreation and Parks and the USTA (United States Tennis Association). The Tennis Alliance promotes tennis as a lifetime sport for health and well-being for all county residents. It is working in a public/private relationship with the County to develop the Tennis Center at Millersville Park.
College students and high school students age 15 or older are needed as volunteers to assist with our "Rally the Family" program in the public parks that introduce tennis to diverse populations. Our children’s programs include lessons on sportsmanship, hard work and healthy habits; our adult programs provide information on healthy lifestyles and family nutrition. Volunteers work closely with children ages 10 and under and their parents to teach the basics of tennis through a team and games-oriented structure. The goal is for fun, fitness, and friendship through tennis -- all with the gift of learning a "sport for life" that can be played at the local parks.
No tennis experience or skills are required or necessary. Leadership opportunities are available for those who complete an on line course and workshop. Spring and Summer volunteer opportunities begin March 22, 2017 for International Fitness day and weekends in April for Healthy Anne Arundel Month.
For more information or to join our volunteer team, please contact Louise Thomas at lthomas@TennisAllianceAAC.org or 410-956-2857. Website: www.TennisAllianceAAC.org.
