Nothing Like a Picnic to Kick off the Holiday Weekend!

Thank You, Volunteers!

Yesterday was the perfect weather for our Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. Several of our dedicated volunteers and walking tour guides attended a lovely outdoor lunch where we all got to meet one another and enjoy some friendly conversation. Ken Goldman, our favorite “photo geek” kindly took some pictures, including the historical-society-appropriate photo you see above. 

We count on our volunteers for so much―greeting the public, guiding tours, landscaping, maintenance, fundraising, publicity, record-keeping, lending their knowledge and skills on any and all subjects―so a few sandwiches on a sunny afternoon was the least we could do.

If you’re interested in lending a hand, fill out the form here, or contact our volunteer coordinator, Jessica Kliskey.
