youth help keep Presidential Home looking beautiful

Our Youth In Action

William  Howard Taft National Historic Site participated in the National Public  Lands Day Event at 2048 Auburn Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio.  The cleanup  and work projects began at 09:00 am which consisted of volunteers  beautifying the park grounds. 


William  Howard Taft National Historic Site was registered for this year’s  National Public Lands Day Event scheduled for September 28, 2019. There  were two groups present to assist the Park staff with tasks that  consisted of: painting wrought iron fences, leaf raking in designated  picnic table area and bagging of yard waste. 


These  young men and young ladies worked very hard and were very focused on  the tasks at hand. Special thanks to these volunteer groups and leaders,  who care about the park resources as well as care for the federal  lands. They are the future leaders and preservationists leading us into  the next century for future generations.


They  are known as the Pythagoreans and Girls Assembly.  These young people  are guided and mentored by ladies from the Eastern Stars and Men of the  Masonic Order which help with structure and team work.


The Groups Represented were Prince Hall Chapter of Cincinnati and Willa M. Saunders Girls Assembly of Cincinnati.
