I have been volunteering at the History Center for over a year, working under Pat Birkhead. She has offered me various opportunities in different departments. I have found my nitch working in the marketing department, but also enjoy helping out with special events. Everyone is a delight to work with. They are always friendly and helpful. No where else would I have had the opportunity to repel down a building, learn about the history of Orlando, meet some of Orlando's most important people, take fascinating trips to all parts of Central Florida, and enjoy doing it all. I always feel a part of the History Center family when I am there.
