Sean Kessler | Executive Director

Seeing as it is National Volunteer Week, I want to take this opportunity to thank all those people and organizations that volunteer for the German Village Society. As you know, we are a small organization with limited resources, so we truly could not function without volunteer help. It takes a village… see what I did there?!

Staffing our Visitors Center, planning and staffing our many events throughout the year, our many committees, and our Board of Trustees (yes, they are volunteers too!). Countless hours go into these volunteer activities, and we cannot begin to repay you for the time you have given us and will give us in the future. Great communities and events are built on the dedication of volunteers, and we are lucky to have some of the best in our city. So, from the staff at the German Village Society, we thank you and we will do our best to make sure you feel our gratitude every day.

Now, I will take this opportunity to call on you for MORE volunteering opportunities! As you know, our signature event is the Haus und Garten Tour and we will need even more of you to fill these spots. House volunteers, house captains, Meeting Haus volunteers, bus docents, mail brigade, photography, etc. These are all positions that we will need to fill in the next two months, so keep an eye out for sign-ups soon.

Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers that make the German Village Society hum! Here are just a few of the many familiar faces that volunteer their time, talents, and voices on Committees, the Board of Trustees, the Visitors Center, and all the events. You are what makes this place the one-of-a-kind neighborhood it is. Thank you!
