    Interested in participating as a volunteer docent. Was a docent at the Mepkin Abbey but grew tired of the drive from James Island where I live. Attended your open house and was impressed with your staff

      Dear Mr. Brune,
      We’re delighted to learn of your interest in supporting the Foundation as a volunteer docent. I have sent your email address to our house museums managers who will follow up directly.
