Meet Maria Mayo!
Women's Rights NHP is pleased to welcome Maria Mayo, our newest volunteer! Maria is semi-retired from the Seneca Cayauga ARC, where she coordinates vocational services.
Maria has three children and three grandsons. According to Maria, "I was brought up by women in my family who believed that women can do it all."
Maria visited Women's Rights NHP with her aunt, whom Maria describes as a "women's libber." During her visit Maria met Volunteer Helen Kirker, and she asked about volunteer opportunities. Maria is "thrilled to be here!"
IT'S ALMOST SPRING!
VOLUNTEER AT YOUR NATIONAL PARK!
Students from an Americorps group at Slippery Rock University (located in Pennsylvania) and the New York Chiropractic College volunteered recently at Women's Rights National Historical Park. The students provided assistance in the cleaning of the second floor of the Visitor Center, and they provided their constructive opinions of the museum exhibits and interpretive displays. We could not do it without you -- thanks to all of you!
STUDENTS VOLUNTEER AGAIN!
Robert Bhagan and Errol Silva, students at the New York Chiropractic College, volunteered recently at Women's Rights National Historical Park.
Robert and Errol helped to move a piano in the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House, where they quickly learned several points about preserving historic objects.
Later they assisted visitors at a special event in the park's visitor center.
Thank you, Robert and Errol!
