There are lots of ways you can help the OMHC, make new friends, learn about local history, and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. Volunteer service after 6 months receives a free one-year membership.

Here’s a sample of what you can do if you decide to join us:

  • Help with digitizing our slide collection and original manuscripts -- a huge job – so that these images can be made more widely available
  • Enter information about our collection of books and scrapbooks into our Library database Past Perfect
  • Curate Eva Butler’s notes for inclusion in the Butler scrapbook collection
  • Learn how to effectively use our search capabilities to help visitors
  • Serve as docents, greeting visitors and helping them with their questions and research needs
  • Help maintain the building and/or grounds

These and other initiatives would benefit greatly from more helping hands!

Please call the OMHC on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and summer Saturdays at (860) 536-9771, or email us at [email protected] if you’d like to get involved!
