Marilyn started volunteering in June with her cousin, and quickly discovered that she loved giving her time at Flamingo Gardens. Putting in over 180 just this summer, Marilyn split her time 6 days a week between working in the nursery and as a guide in the Wray Home. Marilyn was a huge help over the summer giving Spanish speaking tours of the museum, and even coming in period costume!
When asked why she enjoyed volunteering at Flamingo Gardens, Marilyn responded, "It's nice out at the Gardens and I have met a lot of people I wouldn't have met otherwise. I've created a lot of good memories, and done a lot of rewarding jobs."

During the dry season, members also meet on Monday mornings to water the collection.
