Do you love delving into history? Building layouts and running model trains? Helping kids learn about Colonial life? Enjoy working in a shop? Assisting with museum collections? Are you a weaver, woodworker, hearth cooker, or gardener with time and skills to share?
On Saturday, March 19, from 10 to noon, the Wilton Historical Society will be hosting an informal coffee and welcoming people interested in learning more about volunteering opportunities. Experienced volunteers will be on hand to talk about what they do, and to answer questions.
Volunteers play a vital role in fulfilling the society’s efforts to recreate and preserve the past for visitors. Our volunteers fill many positions, from costumed helpers with the Young Nutmeggers 2nd Grade and Young Yankees 4th Grade school programs to assisting with historic documents and records in the society’s archives in the History Room at the Wilton Library.
