Over the last few months, BHS launched a new Volunteer Initiative. In our two very successful Volunteer Orientation sessions, a full house of Volunteers brought new energy, ideas, and enthusiasm about the incredible history and legacy of the Braintree Historical Society. Our goal for this Initiative is to increase our volunteers to 100 over the course of the coming year. Won't you join us?
