Volunteers needed to help out the Waterville Historical Society

Roche de Boeuf Event ~

For the past ten+ years, our historic campus has come alive with artisans, re-enactors, docents, musicians, book sales and attic treasures. The event requires months of planning and, along with the Chamber of Commerce, resources are combined to help us meet our mission to foster an appreciation of our local history. The community has responded positively with their presence and it is hoped that this tradition will continue. However, at this time we do not have a coordinator for this to take place in September, 2016. Will you or someone you know consider taking on this role? The plans are organized down to final details and ready for a willing volunteer(s) to accept the challenge. Help is available; a leader is the critical need. Contact any of the officers listed on the back of the newsletter or through our website if you or someone you know can “take it away!” WHS’ undying gratitude is the reward. An exciting “Pioneer Arts” event is the outcome.

 Live in a Historic Home? Like to tour some?

Pray-Starkweather Home

Within the next calendar year or two, we would like to bring back the historic home tour event that was very popular in the 1980s. We have discussed this with several Waterville homeowners who know the history of the house they are living in and some have agreed to participate. Right now we’re seeking members or friends who may help build our planning committee. We have a good deal of organizational information already. We need energetic, interested adults to help us carry it out. Won’t you consider joining us? Or if you know of your or a neighbor’s wonderful historic home that you or they would be happy to share with our community to benefit the Society, please contact us! Many hands make light work. Let’s see our beautiful historic homes shine!
