The Vernon Volunteers’ Collaborative is a new group supporting the community organizations that make Vernon, CT a special place to work and live. The eleven current organizations, primarily staffed by volunteers, have one or more of the following objectives: the preservation or beautification of Vernon’s open space, parks and environment; preserving and sharing Vernon’s history and historic properties or encouraging appreciation of and participation in the arts. This meet up will connect you with their activities.
The New England Civil War Museum will offer Candlelight Tours of their museum in Town Hall. Members of the museum take the roles of local men who joined the army, marched south and fought in many of the major battles of the Civil War.
The museum offered this event for the first time last year and it proved to be a huge success. It was an opportunity to gather in the hall in small groups to hear the stories of valor and sacrifice as if the men had just returned . . . or in some cases from those who did not return.
Tours are free although donations are accepted. They begin at 7 and 8 p.m. The New England Civil War Museum is located at 14 Park Place in Rockville.
