VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT – Tina Huet


Tina Huet grew up in southern California and moved to the Northeast where she lived for over 20 years before relocating to Amelia Island with her husband of 36 years.  Upon graduating from a small college Tina worked in office administration for various companies.  After having her first child she was fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home mom.  As her two children grew and became more independent, Tina began working part time in a real estate office and volunteering.  

One of her favorite volunteer opportunities was working at the Keeler Tavern Museum (built in 1713) in Ridgefield, Connecticut. Shortly after her husband’s retirement and moving to Amelia Island in 2021, Tina began volunteering in the Archives Department of Amelia Island Museum of History.
When Tina and her husband first visited Amelia Island during a retirement scouting trip up and down the east coast it was love at first sight.  It had everything she wanted in her forever town, especially history. She and her husband were sitting in the high Adirondack chairs at the Green Turtle enjoying a Rum Punch and listening to music when they decided “this is the place”.  

After joining the Newcomers Club of Amelia Island Tina decided the next step is to volunteer at the local history museum.  In addition to working in the archives department, Tina’s other museum activities include serving and setting up for Victorian Teas, working the Shrimp Festival, participating in Dickens on Centre , and Courtyard and Cottages Home Tour.  She will be the Volunteer Coordinator for this year’s Holiday Home Tour taking place on December 6th and 7th.
