Greetings from Saint Paul's Church National Historic Site

This is a selfie from my first day as a VIP (Volunteers in Parks) guide at St. Paul’s Church NHS back in the summer of 2022. I’m a first-year college student who wanted to give back to my local community (SAPA is in my hometown of Mount Vernon, NY, just north of NYC), and working with NPS has been such an amazing experience so far. My mission is to engage with others in sharing our history and I’m proud to serve and make sure that these stories will continue to be remembered for generations to come! :)

Sincerely,
Bryan

    I am not sure that this is the kind of story you are after but here goes. This is about a joke taken to the extreme. As my family traveled around from late 1980s until the early 2000s, they ask me what they might send me as a small gift.…
