How can you help the Haddam Historical Society? The Haddam Historical Society relies on volunteers for many tasks, from cataloging collections to weeding the garden.
We currently have an active and vital group of volunteers who help out in various ways including making kites with fifth graders, writing articles for the newsletter and guarding doors at the Connecticut Spring Antiques Show. However, the Society could always use more help!
We have a number of volunteer opportunities that range from short-term commitments to regularly scheduled hours. We also offer community service hours to middle school and high school students. If one of the activities below interests you, please use the form at bottom to contact us. You may also have a talent that you would like to share with us—give us a call!
