Hosts Needed at Tourist Information Center
Quincy's Tourist Information Center, located in the Villa Kathrine, needs volunteer hosts to welcome visitors to Quincy and the surrounding area.
Volunteer hosts greet visitors, provide information, and offer recommendations of great places to visit, stay or dine that only local residents would know about. Help is needed all year-round, but especially through the month of October when the travel season along the Great River Road is at peak.
Volunteers receive training, offer tours of the historic structure and sell items from the gift shop. Shifts are very flexible, available during the week and on weekends. The Villa is open for Monday through Saturday 9 am-5 pm and Sundays 1-5 pm year-round.
In addition to hosts, Friends of the Castle are looking for board members who are interested in preserving the Villa, one of the most unique buildings in Quincy. The organization was incorporated 40 years ago and is responsible for the operation of the Quincy Tourist Information Center and the upkeep of the building and surrounding landscape. Expertise being sought includes engineering, architecture and historical interest, but is not regulated to those interests. Many areas of interest are welcome on the board of directors.
To volunteer or to become a board member, call the Villa Kathrine at 217-224-3688 and leave your contact information. A representative will return your call as soon as possible.
