Looking for an outlet for your creative ideas?  Then this is the volunteer job for you.  The Stamford History Center (also known as the Historical Society) is recruiting interested individuals to help plan our events each year.  We need dedicated, organized people to help with hospitality, marketing and communication, ad and donation solicitation, finding sponsors, finding event locations, decorations, set up/break down, check in, support for regular events (such as our annual gala) , and help in the creation of new events at our History Center.

Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, November 2nd at 7 pm and the same information will be repeated at a meeting on Thursday, November 3rd at 11 am.  We will meet in the Leila Coleman Room of the Stamford History Center at 1508 High Ridge Road.  There is plenty of free parking available.  Contact Pam Coleman  to express your interest:  info@stamfordhistory.org.  We have not yet established a regular meeting day and time, so do get in contact even if you cannot attend the first session.
