Cheryll's Volunteer Work
I am pleased to announce that I have been accepted and inducted into The Rotary Club of St. Augustine, District 6970, Club #4382 as of 5/21/2018.
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
For more than 110 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. It started with the vision of one man-Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on February 23, 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities.
I look forward to serving my community through membership and participation in The Rotary Club of St. Augustine.

Volunteer Work at the Lightner Museum
"I am part-time volunteer at the Lightner Museum. I have traveled a great deal of the world and am always admiring the inspiration and skill it takes to have built some of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in the world. I feel at home at the Lightner Museum and always have."
About the Museum
"St. Augustine's Lightner Museum of Hobbies" opened in 1948 with the collections of "Gilded Age" artwork, antiques and curios of Otto C. Lightner. As once-proud Chicago estates were put up for auction or sold for taxes during the Depression, Lightner quickly purchased the collections of millionaires that had been acquired over a lifetime.
The current mission of the Museum is to preserve, maintain, research and interpret the Museum’s collections for the educational benefit of the visiting public. The Museum is a non-profit cultural institution sustained by admissions and donations, and it is supported by a dedicated staff of volunteers.
Volunteers play an integral role in the day-to-day operations of the Museum. Volunteers lead tours, assist in sales, and help visitors throughout the Museum.
