Special Committees

 

Concessions Committee

 
The Quail Hollow Volunteer Association Concessions Committee manages the operations of the Quail’s Nest Gift Shop, cross-country ski rental, and limited food service for park events. The profit from each of these activities is used by this organization to support Quail Hollow Park.

There are many volunteer opportunities on the committee including:

Quail’s Nest Gift Shop – Open Sundays 1-4 p.m. and special events. This would involve the ability to make change and write receipts, keeping the gift shop in order.

Cross-Country Ski Rental – Open on weekends during the winter, when adequate snow is available for skiing.. This involves fitting people with ski equipment and showing proper use of equipment.

Traditional Music Night – Setup to sell coffee and food items to visitors. Set out and put away donation boxes at Manor House entrances.

Special Events – Kitchen help, popcorn making, set up and cleaning.

We will train those who are interested. The committee meets regularly April through November.
 

Fine Furnishings Committee

 
This Quail Hollow volunteer committee decorates and furnishes the Manor House to reflect the era and tastes of the 1920’s Stewart Family who built and occupied the house.

The goal of this committee is to further enhance and update the collection of period furniture and accessories in the house, through donations and antique acquisitions. Committee responsibilities include selections of wall coverings, carpet design, paint colors and overall effect of the furnishings placed in the rooms throughout the home.
 

Garden Restoration Committee

 
This Committee has been working to discover and restore a waterfall and rock garden that was built for the Stewart family in 1928. Noted landscape architect Warren H. Manning designed the garden as well as the landscape at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens in Akron as well as many others nationwide.

We have uncovered the waterway and are currently planning to restore a small pond that once was a focal point in the garden. We will use plants mentioned in correspondence found through our research of the garden.

If you like to dig, plant, weed and discover or just enjoy getting dirty out in the fresh air then this may be the place to volunteer. Join us on selected Saturdays or Thursdays or whenever the mood hits us.
