Zachary-Tolbert House Kick-off
by Mary Jane McCall
The 2019 season at the historic Zachary-Tolbert House promises to be one of its most exciting yet. Cashiers Historical Society is kicking off their season opening on May 24 from 11:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. with a welcome brunch for the volunteers who keep things running smoothly, year-round.
There will be an informational morning session for those looking to volunteer with the Historical Society during the summer, as well as giving updates on the summer schedule. A bit of time will be spent regarding volunteering for the Annual Showhouse in July and August. This is the society’s major fundraiser for the year and they rely on many volunteers to help. The Showhouse is well-attended and residents and visitors look forward to attending it year after year. This is a great chance to roll up your sleeves and join in the action.
After the informational sessions, brunch guests are welcome to tour the Zachary-Tolbert House and spend time enjoying the grounds.
A more formal opening reception will be held on June 7 celebrating the restoration of the Hampton School House.
