Volunteer Opportunities

Become a Volunteer!

The Historical Society offers a wide range of volunteer roles and timeframes, be it an hour here and there to help with records maintenance, or a larger, long-term project commitment. From assisting with concerts and speaker programs, being part of the Oral History project, or training as a tour guide for HarborWalk, your skills and time are most welcome gifts. Volunteer training is offered for special projects, but general office support volunteers become active “on the job.”

To get involved, contact us at shhistoricalsociety@gmail.com and let us know which area interests you.
