Robie needs guides

Staff Writer

The Frank Lloyd Trust is seeking volunteers to act as tour guides at the Robie House.

Volunteer resource manager Linda Bonifas-Guzman said they are looking for 12 to 15 prospective volunteers, who can commit four hours a month, for six months. Volunteers will lead tours at the Robie House, 5757 S. Woodlawn Ave.

The three-week training session will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Feb. 11 to Feb. 27. The training sessions include independent reading and classroom studies on the history of Wright and the house.

“We run tours every day of the week,” Bonifas-Guzman said. “We can use people on the weekends that are working [or] new retirees that are very anxious to keep busy with something meaningful — with something stimulating.”
