Volunteer Docents needed for 

Swiss Ave. Home Tour May 13-14

The Swiss Avenue Mother’s Day Home Tour is just around the corner, and the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance Foundation is proud to showcase the historic Aldredge House  this year. The Aldredge House will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and we are excited to open the doors to the public so that they can view this gorgeous example of a preserved historic home.  They expect over 5,000 people to attend this year’s event, and we will need volunteers to act as docents in this magnificent home.  We need 84 docents in total, and we would love to have any help we can get to make sure this home’s history and stories are well told.

We have set up a sign-up sheet through the link below.  We need docents in 2 ¼ hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday, May 13-14.  On the sign-up page, we have provided a brief history of the Aldredge House, as well as the perks for volunteering. 


Also, to thank anyone that signs up for a shift, the DCMSA Foundation will be hosting a pre-party the week before home tour.  This will give our docents the opportunity to go through the entire home at their leisure.  We encourage all of our docents to attend this event, as it will help familiarize you with the stories and history that make this home so special.  More details will follow to those who volunteer for the event.

If anyone has questions or needs more information, please contact RuLan Hebeler at aldredgehouse@gmail.com.  We would also encourage all of you to please forward this email on to anyone that you think might enjoy being a docent.

Thanks so much for your time, and we hope to see all of you soon!

                The DCMSA Foundation, the oldest Medical Alliance in America, created in 1917, has a rich history of health-related service projects that have provided free health services to over one million at risk people in Dallas.   The Texas Historical Commission has just awarded a historic marker in recognition of our first 100 years of service to this community. 

In April, this marker will be installed at Aldredge House.  The Co-Chairs for the Marker Dedication event are Barbara Chapman and Cyndy Hudgins, both TMA Alliance and DCMSA Foundation Past Presidents.  Look for your invitation to the April 5th marker dedication and be a part of this special event.

                The historic Aldredge House, designed and built by Hal Thomson in 1917, is a Texas Historic Landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places in America.  In 1974, the family of George and Rena Munger Aldredge generously bestowed their family home at 5500 Swiss Avenue to the DCMSAF for the enrichment of the community. Since 1974, this residential landmark has been the headquarters of the Medical Alliance and welcomed over fifty nonprofit organizations and many guests. Preservation Dallas is honoring the Alliance’s careful preservation of the home with another award -  their 2016 Stewardship Award.

                The DCMSA Foundation is seeking community support so we can continue to preserve the rich heritage of this magnificent house. Sharon and Mike McCullough are the Co- Chairs of the Advisory Host Committee for this Centennial Celebration Luncheon because of their belief in historic preservation, its importance in an ever-changing society, and their great respect for the outstanding preservation of the Aldredge House by the Medical Alliance. 

Member support is so appreciated, as we need an endowment to maintain this historic treasure for our community.  Please gather your friends and join me, as we celebrate this exciting birthday on May 16. 

Turning 100 definitely calls for a Centennial Celebration!
