Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of the Friends of Raymond is to preserve, interpret, manage, and promote significant historic sites in Raymond, Hinds County, Mississippi, and the surrounding area and to receive contributions or grants from any and all sources to be used for one or more of the foregoing purposes.
Friends of Raymond is an all volunteer organization founded in 1998 to preserve historic sites around the beautiful town of Raymond, Mississippi.
We are governed by a nine-member Board of Directors elected by the FOR membership, and all work is done by volunteers - there is no paid staff or administrative costs that are not used to directly support the organization.
Our group has purchased, preserved, and provided historical interpretation for the original site of the Battle of Raymond, which was an important part of General Ulysses S. Grant’s 1862 Vicksburg campaign during the Civil War. We work closely with the City of Raymond to coordinate historic preservation efforts for this beautiful and historic area. All work depends completely on memberships, donations, and sponsors.
