Historical society calls on ‘Ready Rangers’

The Wilton Historical Society is forming a new program specifically for students in fifth grade and up. Called the Ready Rangers, the members are valued volunteers who are ready to help at the society when called.
The Ready Rangers will meet once a month to get to know each other, have fun with a history related craft or project (pizza, too), and hear about upcoming events where their help might be needed.
They may be asked to take tickets at an event, judge a contest, or assist with historic crafts and activities — and have fun while helping.
The first meeting is Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 3:30 to 4:30.
“We already know that we will need some brave volunteers to help out with our Things That Go Bump in the Night ghost event on Oct. 10,” said Leslie Nolan, executive director. “We are hoping some of our Ready Rangers can step into action when they get the call.”
The Ready Rangers will wear special T-shirts when they are helping, and receive certificates of appreciation at the end of the year. All arrangements are by e-mail, and parents are in the loop.
