Friends of Alexandria Archaeology (FOAA) Wish List


Friends of Alexandria Archaeology (FOAA) was started in 1986 by a group of local volunteers amazed at the archaeological resources hidden beneath our feet in Alexandria. Ever since, this dedicated volunteer group has committed itself to promoting Alexandria Archaeology, and educating and informing visitors and citizens alike about Alexandria’s archaeological wonders.FOAA’s support includes offering a Summer Camp scholarship, assisting on site tours, Family Dig Days, and teaching Archeology Adventure Lessons to school, senior, scout, and special-needs groups. FOAA provides refreshments for the museum's Java Jolts--which are open to the whole community--and for special events. FOAA volunteers march in the annual George Washington Day Birthday Parade and supervise special Museum events like the Xmas Ornament Decorating workshop and Arts Activated. In addition, FOAA members act as docents, welcoming the public to the Museum throughout the year.In all its activities, FOAA promotes community and visitor involvement in Alexandria’s discovery and appreciation of its rich history.
