GA Trust Spring Ramble Visits Thomasville

ABOUT THE RAMBLE

Georgia Trust Rambles feature exclusive tours and social events in historic properties not usually open to the public. Tours of historic homes and buildings are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up. These trips attract hundreds of participants per Ramble and are offered two weekends each year (fall and spring). Thomasville is hosting the 2019 Spring Ramble April 12-14 and we need your help!

Volunteer Positions: 

Greeter: A Greeter will be stationed at the entry of each home and will monitor the entry and exit of guests. Greeters will act as each home’s host and must be must be welcoming, friendly, and hospitable. Greeters should be comfortable interacting with the public, providing guidance on Ramble destinations and promoting Thomasville’s attractions. 

Docent: Docents will be stationed throughout the homes and available to answer questions about the house and community. Docents must be welcoming, friendly, and hospitable. 

Sales/Registration: Volunteers will be responsible for completing sales transactions so they must be comfortable handling money. Technology skills are a plus for operating payment processing software!
