Rock & Rails Volunteer of the Week: Maddie Frary

Longtime Rock & Rails volunteer Maddie Frary doesn’t mind being one of the only girls on Gargoyle crew. In fact, working with the boys is often pretty “fun” according to her.

“I have many friends who are boys,” the spectacled seventh grader-to-be said. “It’s really not that hard.”

After all, it was a boy who convinced her to join up in the first place.

“My brother did it first,” Frary said, referring to older brother Alex, another longtime volunteer. “When I was young, it looked like a lot of fun. I wanted to do it alongside him.”

Frary has been volunteering at Rock & Rails for two years. When she’s not at helping out there, the middle schooler enjoys spending time with her family, and playing flute in the band at Sunset.

Frary enjoys her job keeping the grounds of Whistle Stop Park clean during the Thursday night summer concerts, especially when she gets a friendly nod or compliment from a grateful concertgoer. However, she did have a message for litterbugs, who are thankfully few and far between.

“I really don’t like it when people don’t listen,” Frary said. “Be considerate. Don’t just leave your trash everywhere.”
