Calling All Volunteers!

The Gates Historical Society is seeking volunteers to help with various events and open days at the Hinchey house.
Do you have 2-3 hours a month to spare? We are specifically looking for some help with fall leaves cleanup and snow removal. We will be also looking for coverage for our Holly Days in December.
Our goal is to develop a volunteer base we can draw on for special events and days we are open at the Hinchey house. If you are interested or know anyone who would be, please contact Sue Swingle at the Hinchey House at 585-464-9740.
