February’s Volunteer of the Month 2010
Frances Grayson

Tybee Island Light Station

If you visit the Head Keeper’s Cottage at the Tybee Lighthouse on the first or third Wednesday of any month you will most likely have the pleasure of meeting Frances Grayson.  Her gracious welcome to our visitors makes them feel right at home in the restored cottage.

Frances has volunteered at the Light Station since 1993 when she was recruited by Bob Adkins, a fellow church member at All Saints Episcopal Church.  She had lived on Tybee since 1978 and had recently retired from her job as Sales Coordinator at Atlanta Gas Light. She worked many volunteer hours in the Lighthouse and then moved over to the Head Keeper’s Cottage when its restoration was completed in 2001.  In addition to her volunteer hours at the Light Station Frances also served on the Tybee Island Historical Society Board of Directors for about ten years, retiring from the Board three years ago.

When Frances is in the Head Keeper’s Cottage she not only shares the history of the Light Station she also shares her love of Tybee Island.  She says she “can’t imagine living anywhere else.” We appreciate very much her dedication, dependability and her many volunteer hours.
