Flamingo Gardens Volunteer Categories:
* EFFECTIVE JULY 2021: Thank you for your interest in volunteer opportunities at Flamingo Gardens. We are grateful for those who supported us the past year and for all the renewed interest in giving back to the community through volunteerism. Unfortunately, due to the record turnout of potential student volunteers in June, Flamingo Gardens cannot accept any additional middle/high school volunteers at this time. We apologize and encourage you to periodically visit our website for updates as to when we will resume recruiting teenage volunteers.
Volunteers are typically able to set up a weekly schedule. While some positions require specifics hours, in many areas the Volunteer Department will work with you to set up a schedule that works for you.
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Our August Volunteer of the Month is awarded posthumously to Jeffrey Brezner, beloved Wray Home guide since 2015.
Jeff was a dedicated volunteer and was quick with a joke during his tours of the museum. He always had a quarter in his pocket that he would pull out and make “appear” from behind the ears of delighted children that toured the home. Jeff was often seen out in the gardens, camera in hand, taking beautiful photos that he shared in our Camera Club. His warm smile and charming personality made everyone feel welcome.
Our hearts are with his wife Sandy Block-Brezner, another loyal volunteer, and the Brezner family during this difficult time. Jeff was a part of our Flamingo Gardens family and will be greatly missed by all. Thank you Jeff.
