What drives today’s Docents to stay with the Library year after year?
Jerry, a Docent for eight years, is a retired law enforcement officer living in La Habra. He says,
“I have had the unique privilege to meet many interesting individuals and historical dignitaries. Working as a Docent is like experiencing history firsthand and meeting people who actually participated in shaping our country’s major political and historical events during the Nixon era. It’s sort of like having an insider’s view of Nixon’s days as President.”
Bonnie, a Corona del Mar resident with a background of community service, has been a Docent for over 19 years. She comments,
“I meet the most interesting and the nicest people from all walks of life. I have met and made friends with bright, thoughtful and gracious men and women who are my fellow Docents. And being a Docent makes me use my brain.”
Dennis retired as a medical librarian before becoming a Docent last year. The Fullerton resident observes,
“I enjoy sharing the story of President Nixon with visitors. I am always pleased when they tell me at the end of their visit how much they learned about him that they didn’t know. I also enjoy being on the property–the well-maintained and beautiful grounds are so peaceful.”
