Volunteers Needed for Research Library Photograph Scanning Project – St Augustine Historical Society

Click here to find out all the details about Volunteering for this project.   And to learn more about the St. Augustine Historical Society, go to their home page.  Volunteer application.

Research Library volunteers have helped make our resources available to local and global patrons for the past 50 years. It is through their generosity that the library is able to offer a wide variety of services.

The St. Augustine Historical Society Research Library has an extensive photographic collection that we are digitizing for preservation and access to the public. We are currently in need of volunteers to scan these photographs.  If you share a passion for local and family history with others, you may want to help us with this project. Our librarians will work with your schedule, skill set, and interests. Once you are comfortable with your project, you can work at your own pace. We provide detailed work guides and are always available to assist you. Our volunteers will also receive training and orientation regarding the library and the St. Augustine Historical Society.

 Volunteers range in age from college students to retirees. They have the opportunity to work in a pleasant relaxed setting with friendly and interesting people, they bring special skills to our projects and they share a special bond knowing they are helping to preserve our history for future generations. Volunteers participate in lectures, field trips, and special gatherings in order to learn more about St. Augustine and St. Johns County.

Have questions? Contact Debby Willis, Assistant Librarian to learn more about our current volunteer opportunities.

Do you believe in the values of Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Courtesy, Sportsmanship, Responsibility, Perseverance, Confidence, and using Good Judgement?

Do you hold these Core Values dear and think that children would benefit from learning and implementing them in their lives?  

Have you thought of Volunteering with the First Tee of North Florida? Those Core Values are our Mission – to positively impact the lives of children teaching these Core Values through the Game of Golf. 

You do not have to be a Golfer. You just need to encourage kids to have fun golfing and through specifically designed games they learn the different Core Values. We provide orientation and training to prepare you. It’s easy, COME JOIN US!

 Classes range 1 hour to one hour and a half is our longest.  They are after school classes so usually from 4:30 or 5 pm start time. We do run Saturday classes. Let us know your availability after the application process. You will be encouraging kids to play golf using lesson plans provided by a lead coach. You will always be working with other coaches.

If you would like to spread the positive impact of these Core Values to children ages 5 through High School, please contact  our Volunteer and Coach Coordinator Anne Venezia at Anne@thefirstteenorthflorida.org or call her cell at 508-237-1043.  Thank You for your interest and we hope to hear from you. Your time is valuable and the rewards are many

Newcomers Participate in Charity Funding

Newcomers of North St. Johns has welcomed many new members this past 2012-13 season.  In addition to giving women an opportunity to meet at their monthly meetings and luncheons and participate and become better acquainted in their many choices of different kinds of monthly activities, they are  involved in giving back to their north
St. Johns County community.  With successful members’ participation in the
50/50 raffles and the used-book sales, the Board at their last meeting for this
season  voted to provide donations to:

1.  The Donna Foundation- to provide funds to help women obtain mammographies and assist women who are fighting breast cancer in our area.

2.  St. Johns County School District ASSIST Program- to provide for homeless children in St. Johns County this summer with books, journals and other items to keep their young minds active, along with toys and non-perishable food items.

3.  St. Johns County Public Library- because of budget cut-backs, to provide funds dedicated to the purchase of new books for the childrens’ section.

4.  St Augustine Humane Society- to provide funds that will assist families, in the face of
financial difficulty, who want to keep their pets.

And during the year, Newcomer members have contributed food at their monthly meetings that is collected and delivered to Second Harvest.  Breast cancer postage stamps are used for all their mailings where a part of the cost is designated for
research.  Newcomers of North  St. Johns truly emulate their club motto, “Friendship is a
gift to be shared with others.”
