Each month, we would like to highlight some of our docents and bring them to life for each of you. Our docent staff is made up of individuals from far and wide, of varying ages, and diverse backgrounds. We hope you might consider joining our team after learning more about us. Next up- Becky!
Name: Becky Fawcett
When did you begin volunteering?
What drew you to volunteer at the Hunter House?
The previous Director forced me 😉 (Just kidding, I love you Margaret!)
What is your favorite item in our collection?
The Japanese Bridal Chest upstairs in the hallway- if only it would fit in my pocketbook!
Coffee or Tea?
TEA- no contest
Favorite period television or movie drama, historic novel, or both.
It’s not Victorian, but “Pride and Prejudice” and “A Woman of Substance”
Do you have a mantra or favorite quote?
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and “All is well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well”
Name a hidden talent of yours.
So many! Not all hidden: crocheting, writing, scrapbooking, stamping, started to learn the flute when I turned 60 but it isn’t a talent yet
What has been the highlight of your time as a volunteer with us?
Lots! Making friends with everyone, drinking tea together, learning all about the Victorian Era, and being able to sign up for events before everyone else because I know about them first!
Fill in the blank: When not at the museum, you can find me reading, working on my hobbies, picking up by grandkids, drinking tea, or watching Blue Bloods (I love Tom Sellick!!!).
Thanks for sharing with us Becky! If you would like to know more about joining our family of volunteers, call us at 623-9814 or shoot us an email at email@example.com.
