How does a volunteer group stay active when the entity they are dedicated to supporting has closed its doors of the main site for renovation? I’m speaking of the Riverside Museum Associates members who docent at both the Riverside Metropolitan Museum and Heritage House, and provide other support and activities associated with the Museum. One of those activities, which started as training for docents, is field trips to local historic sites. If anyone is interested in local history and would like to be more involved, check out the Riverside Museum Associates ( and maybe join us on one of our fun and informative bus tours. The upcoming trip is to the newly renovated Nixon Presidential Library. The trip is Dec. 6th, and leaves from Heritage House (8193 Magnolia Avenue, Riverside) at 9:15, returning approx. 3:15. The cost is $58 per person and includes bus, admission, lunch at Mimi’s Cafe, and all gratuities. Please contact Barbra at 951-682-3262. We must have your reservation by Nov. 21st.
