Your help is needed! The Vinings Historic Preservation Society is looking for some energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to help plan and execute this highly anticipated event! Listed below are the committees they need to staff and they’d love to have your help.
Public Relations and Website Committee

House Chairs and Docents on Tour day
Logistics (Placing signs around the neighborhood before the Tour and collecting afterwards, checking the homes for supplies on Tour day, placing directional signs, placing balloons and general errand runners)
Photography (Photograph the homes for our website, photograph the Preview Party in action! Provide photos on a disc for VHPS)
Preview Party volunteers – (work the check in table and assist with auction check out, decorating, possible need for wine and soft drink servers)
They will need volunteers to help with things like stamping and labeling invitations and general clerical work. If you have great computer skills and can help with things like fliers and brochures they would love to have your help! If you have writing skills they can sure use your talents! In fact, if you have a mature student (of driving age) in your family who needs community service hours for school and he/she has computer skills, graphic skills, social media skills they would be pleased to talk with them as well.
Please contact the VHPS office if you are able to volunteer and let them know what you are interested in doing. You will be contacted by one of their chairs so please provide your phone number and email information.
