It’s membership renewal time!

If you haven’t already done so, please take a minute to send in your check or click on the PayPal link in the right margin to renew today.

(And if your contribution has already been sent, thank you!)

Your membership has enabled us to accomplish so much this year. Because of you, we expanded our work with local students and educators. We created new tours for local second-graders. We are mentoring Haddonfield Memorial High School students working with primary source material in our Archives Center. We published a new children’s book in collaboration with the Haddonfield Middle School Nature Club.

With your help we continue to reach new audiences with our public programs, our book club, our Facebook page and our website. We also are able to continue to preserve Haddonfield’s historic Greenfield Hall and Samuel Mickle House, which is the oldest frame structure in Camden County, as well as care for our wonderful museum collections and Archives Center.

But we have big plans and need your continued support.

Pottery

Among the collections that will benefit from the new award are these examples of locally made pottery.

The Historical Society of Haddonfield has been awarded a $2,147 matching grant from the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (CCAHA) to help us continue to improve environmental conditions for our museum and archival collections.

Funded with the generous support of the William Penn Foundation, the award will allow the Historical Society to purchase upgraded climate control equipment, environmental monitors, storage furniture, housing supplies, and UV-filtering film.

The Historical Society qualified for the new grant after participating in CCAHA’s Philadelphia Stewardship Program over the last year. The program is designed to help non-profit collecting institutions achieve their preservation and conservation goals and is open to institutions within Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania and Camden County, NJ.

Kathy leading tourEach year, the Historical Society of Haddonfield hosts visits from elementary schools as part of the school curriculum on local history. Last year, we led tours for ten classes of third-graders as they learned more about Haddonfield’s rich past.

This year, we’ll be offering tours for second-grade AND third-grade classes, so we need your help!

We’re looking for more volunteers for our docent program. Volunteers should be willing to commit to helping with at least two tours of Greenfield Hall this spring. The tours will be held from 1-2:30 pm during the week, and are currently being scheduled with teachers. All volunteer docents are also required to attend a one-hour training session at Greenfield Hall at one of the following times:

– Monday February 29 at 1 pm; or
– Wednesday March 2 at 1 pm; or
– Friday March 4 at 1 pm.

If you’re interested, please RSVP to Marsha Marshall at info@haddonfieldhistory.org, and let her know which of those training dates would work best for you. Thank you, and if you have any questions, please contact us at info@haddonfieldhistory.org or 856-429-7375.
