Sign up now to volunteer for our biggest event of the year: The Sister Cities Yorktown, French Market, Saturday, April 22 on the Yorktown waterfront.

From set-up to tear down, to lots of fun in between, we need your help! We especially seek volunteers for the Wine Garden and the Marché aux Puces (flea market). This is one of our organization’s most successful fundraisers, so don’t miss the opportunity to make this the greatest market ever! Volunteers can contact Mark Medford at

We also invite you to clean out your attics, basements and sheds for items appropriate for our ever-popular flea market table. Popular items are pottery, table linens, art work, French souvenirs, French cookbooks, art books, travel books. No clothing, please. If you have donations, please contact Deborah Marquardt, Arrangements can be made for pickup or drop off.

There is yet another way to contribute: donate to the silent auction! A weekend at the Outer Banks, a lovely bottle of wine, dinner for two at a special restaurant, a distinguished piece of art or sculpture, a round of golf, a bouquet of flowers delivered every month — there are hundreds of ideas! All donations are tax deductible. Contact Don Willis at

See you there!
