Each year, the Society relies on nearly 250 volunteers to develop and mount exhibits at the museum and in the schools, to run an antiques appraiser series, organize a house tour, serve as docents at the Museum, work with students in the Chappaqua schools, assist with clerical duties, and provide special event assistance for a total of about 5,000 hours.
