Call for Gingerbread Volunteers!

It’s that time of year again – the 2017 Gingerbread House Extravaganza! The Extravaganza opens November 30 through December 23, Monday – Friday, 11am – 5pm and Saturday, 10am – 5pm. The Historical Society is gearing up for another amazing year of holiday tradition. Last year was the most successful Extravaganza, to date, and this was largely due to our amazing volunteer corps, builders and hands-on volunteers alike! The Historical Society will be using (the leading online signup and reminder tool) this year to organize our upcoming Gingerbread House Extravaganza Volunteers. Shifts are roughly 3 hours long and, most importantly, fun! Please click here to go to our website to learn more about the Extravaganza. To sign-up, see below.
