RAL docents are often seen at the entrance to the Homestead Gallery, welcoming people and providing historical and current information on the house and gar- den, as well as facts on the current show and other information.

On a summer or rainy day, there could be as many as 20 to 25 visi- tors during a three-hour shift. The 24 docents perform many other functions. For the garden party, they rent-tables and chairs as well as linens. They place bas- kets of flowers on each table and they provide old-fashioned lemonade and iced-tea to balance out the wine and beer that is served. They raise as much as $3,000 at such events to fund various proj- ects such as a fold-up map denot- ing the names of the paintings in the Homestead Gallery. Last year, they replaced the screens on the porch. Their next project is to get a table and chairs made for the porch. The Homestead Garden was re- planted in 1999 at a cost of about $150,000. Garden party funds are used for the garden or the house, depend- ing on the need, said Executive Director Nancy Alexander. In 1999-2000, the Art League docents offered to do more and formed a Docent Council as a co- ordinating body. It has proven useful for handling the garden party and other work. On that committee are six very active do- cents, including Ronnie Dupin, Anne Hanna, Mitzi Shank, Geor- gia Vogt, Trip Wilkinson and rose- marie Bahan. Bahan also does a newsletter twice a year for the do- cents. A spring orientation is held each year. At a fall luncheon, awards are given to the docents.
