GCVHF - Second Saturday
April 1, 2013
The GCVHF office will be opened for researchers on the second Saturday of the month. We're offering the Saturday hours primarily for people who can't get to the office during the work week.
Second Saturday hours will begin April 13th and go to October 12th. We'll be open from 10 AM to 4 PM. See our calendar at www.graysonheritage.org/events for our full office schedule.
This Second Saturday program is part of an effort to better connect with the local community. It will require more time from our current office volunteers. More volunteers are needed. If you like helping others and have time to work in our office during these Saturdays or other days contact us.
