All About





Volunteers are Essential

The Kennebec Historical Society is a volunteer organization. We rely on a cadre of volunteers to perform our numerous tasks; volunteers are the backbone of KHS.

Volunteers are Needed Now More Than Ever

In the past, KHS has been blessed with just such a volunteer group. Now that the society has taken on the responsibilities of a large new headquarters at 107 Winthrop Street, we need these volunteers and many more. Whether by being a receptionist, serving on committees, assisting with mailing or filing, writing research reports, helping with special events, caring for the house and grounds or working in the societys reading room, our volunteers are essential to the daily operation of the organization.

Volunteers Control When They Work and What They Work On

Our volunteers set the limits on how much time they donate. They specify the kinds of tasks they prefer and work as a team to keep KHS a vibrant and active organization. The special talents and insights that our volunteers bring to the job help to keep the society moving forward while still keeping an eye on its mission to preserve the past through collecting, preserving and sharing important historical collections.
