If you're interested in donating your time to help with the preservation and restoration of local artifacts, memorials, historic buildings, landmarks and other educational projects, consider joining a new California Questers chapter now forming in the in the Sacramento area. Questers is an international nonprofit organization founded in 1944 and headquartered in Philadelphia with 800 chapters around the United States, 35 in California. Questers work on defined projects, often with local historical societies' preservation and restoration efforts including lighthouses, historic homes, monuments, and artifacts in museums and missions. This year the Governor's Mansion State Historic Park has been the benefactor of efforts of the California Questers, working with the Governor's Mansion State Historic Park staff to identify acquisition needs. This has led to a series of projects, each of which contributes to the restoration of this state historic park and Sacramento landmark.
If research and the study of antiques appeals to you, be sure to attend the first California Questers informational meeting at the Governor's Mansion State Historic Park, 1526 H Street in Sacramento, on Saturday, June 11, at 11 a.m. Come one, come all, and join a worthwhile and rewarding effort that supports the preservation and restoration of historical landmarks.
