Volunteers needed to welcome people at M'boro Open House

VOLUNTEERS are needed to welcome members of the public to buildings during Maryborough Open House on Saturday, October 26.

Councillor and chairman of the organising committee George Seymour said last year's event was a smashing success thanks to the contribution of more than 100 volunteers.

"The event's success depended on the work of the volunteers," he said.

"This year we will have more than 20 historic homes and buildings which are normally closed to the public, will be opened free of charge to visitors. 

"Maryborough is justly proud of the beautiful and varied historic architecture.  This is our chance to proudly show it off. 

"On the day locals and tourists can learn about our history and how it can be interpreted through architecture.

"Volunteers don't need to have knowledge of history, just a willingness to have fun and welcome members of the public to the buildings.

"Volunteering on the day is a great opportunity to get more involved to learn more and to join a fun team."

Anyone wanting to volunteer, can register through the council website at www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au/maryborough-open-house.
