Women's Rights National Historical Park recognized longtime volunteer Helen Kirker in a ceremony on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. Mrs. Kirker serves as a volunteer at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, where she provides visitor services at the park's Information Desk.

Helen Kirker has contributed more than 1,500 hours since 2004 to the visitors services operations at Women's Rights National Historical Park. "It has been a great joy for me to be a volunteer, and I have had a very rewarding experience here," said Mrs. Kirker.

Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, which was held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "We are proud of Helen Kirker's dedication and longtime service to Women's Rights National Historical Park," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne. "Volunteers are an essential component of the National Park system, and we greatly appreciate all of Helen's time and effort in helping us to tell the compelling stories at this site," added Superintendent Duchesne.
