Community of Christ owes deep gratitude to the many volunteers who help run the properties supported by the church's Historic Sites Foundation.
But there are never enough. Especially this year at the Joseph Smith Historic Site in Nauvoo, Illinois. "We have significant volunteer needs," Lach Mackay reported to the foundation's board in March. "We are significantly shorthanded in Nauvoo. We need couples to move there, and make it their home. We would provide housing."
If interested, please call (217) 453-2246.
It's great when a difficult goal is achieved, and it's even better when it's surpassed.
Such was the case with the "$22K by 22 May" fund-raising campaign this spring by the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation.
The original goal was set for the purpose of funding four internships at the historic sites. But generous donors exceeded the goal, contributing $30,499.26. That amount will enable five internships to be funded.
Interns, of course, primarily serve during the busy summer months. But operation and maintenance of the sites are year-round obligations.
