VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT – PAM FOX
Family ties to Ponte Vedra Beach caused Pam Fox (pictured on the right) and Jim Raycraft to retire earlier than they initially planned. They completed their riverfront home on Amelia Island in May 2016. As full-time residents, they now live in their forever home on the Amelia Island Plantation. Pam wanted to learn as much about the island’s history as possible, so she ventured to the Museum of History almost immediately. She found it fascinating and volunteered for docent training. With her background in consulting, sales, public speaking, and business development, she’s been a natural. She completed the training within her first year here, and despite getting involved in other local volunteer activities such as Barnabas and golf at the Amelia Island Club, she has stayed with the Museum and remains on the weekly schedule Wednesdays at 2 pm. She also fills in for other shifts when she can. Pam says, “I am proud of our island’s history and the visitors we get at the museum make the tours fun for me too! I encourage others to consider being a docent — it’s fun to learn the history and it’s nice to share with your friends when they visit.”
Thank you, Pam, the museum is better and stronger for your continued support.
