Volunteers Needed!

Help the city re-live Paul Revere's historic ride from Boston through Somerville and onto Lexington and Concord. Adults and high school students are needed to volunteer at the City's annual Patriots Day Colonial Fair at Foss Park on Monday, April 18.

Volunteers will help residents learn about life in the late 1700s by leading Colonial era games, serving refreshments and distributing and stamping Colonial Passports. To set the scene, all volunteers will dress in Colonial era clothing, and we have clothing to lend and tips for what to wear of your own. We’ll also teach you games to lead including hop scotch, cat’s cradle, hoop rolling and ring toss.

Who: Sponsored by the City's Historic Preservation Commission, Historic Somerville and the Somerville Museum.
When: 10:30 a.m.-noon, Mon. April 18 (rain or shine) at Foss Park.
Volunteers needed between 9 and 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Contact: Email Barbara Mangum or call 617-625-5809, or email Brandon Wilson or call 617-625-6600 ext. 2532.
