We Are Seeking Docents

The Historical Society needs YOU! Got a couple hours to spare this summer? Why not spend them at the Havens House Museum: greeting visitors, answering questions and guiding guests through the rooms of the house. Docents are needed for two-hour shifts on Saturdays from 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The Society is hoping to staff the museum with two people for each Saturday shift, through September 6. Shifts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are from 10 a.m. to noon, and from noon to 2 p.m. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our Island's unique history and to share that knowledge with residents and visitors in beautiful and historic surroundings. To get your name on the list or for more information, please call 631-749-0025 or email: info@shelterislandhistorical.org.
