Volunteers in the Vaults Field Trip
This special Volunteers in the Vaults event will be hosted by the Friends of Maple Grove Cemetery – “Where History Comes Alive” in Kew Gardens. If you’ve never visited Maple Grove, this is your chance to see archival treasures from its vaults and get a walking tour by historian Carl Ballenas through the cemetery’s lovely grounds. This event is open to current and aspiring Queens Memory volunteers. Please join us! Volunteers in the Vaults is a public, bi-monthly program for Queens Memory volunteers and the general public interested in learning about our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. Attendees have the chance to discuss their ideas for Queens-related oral history projects and network with Queens Memory volunteers and staff.
Note, we will meet in the Victorian Building on Kew Gardens Road and Lefferts Blvd. (marked as #1 on the map). Gates will close at 6 pm. Free parking is available on the grounds; the closest subway station is the Briarwood – Van Wyck Ave. stop on the E and F train line. Questions and RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
