Volunteer Opportunities

There are many different ways to get involved at CHS. We welcome your participation! Please feel free to contact us if you would like to volunteer in any of the capacities listed below, or for other opportunities that may crop up from time to time. To volunteer, call 860-669-2148 or email us at: 



Docents are trained to give guided tours of Old Brick, and are needed whenever our house museum is open to the public. We also need docents to open the Museum Room in Town Hall on Thursday evenings in the summer. 

Garden Committee

Members of the Garden Committee tend our beautiful perennial and herb gardens every Tuesday morning from 9:00 a.m. till noon, from spring till fall. Join them to lend a hand with weeding, pruning, mulching, and more, and to learn from these very experienced volunteers.


The George Flynn Library is open every Wednesday morning from 9:00 a.m. till noon, and volunteers are welcome.


If you'd like to bake some goodies for a CHS Open House, or help pour lemonade at one of our Pierson School visits, please contact us and volunteer to be part of the Hospitality Committee. No long-term commitment is necessary; just lend a hand when you can, and you will be much appreciated.
