Would you like to know how it feels to a be a Pioneer? Dress in a Pioneers Costume? Meet new people? Volunteers needed at the Will County Historical Society’s Heritage Village, in Lockport,Il
Our goal is to keep the Heritage Village open one weekend a month during the summer. It will take at least three volunteers to keep the buildings open & show people around.
We are looking for families or groups that would like to volunteer together. Children could play on the grounds with traditional toys, play games or just walk around in costume. Adults would monitor visitors to the school house, depot, farm house and calaboose. Home school families could set up in the school house, sit at the desks and fell what it was like to learn in a one room school house atmosphere.
Costumes would be provided, but costumes are not mandatory.
Hours served will count toward community service hours for high-schoolers. Miles driven to the Village would be tax deductible.
If you , your family, or group would like to volunteer at the Heritage Village, please contact Sandy Vasko at 815-341-0226.
