Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Caning Help Needed – Looking for volunteers to help keep the historical aspects of Wiawaka alive. Do you cane? Do you know someone who does? We have several chairs that need to be caned. This could be a great winter way to keep Wiawaka in your thoughts. Notify Glenda Lewis if you are interested. glendaglewis@gmail.com or 518-505-3348. We will also be looking for people to do small paint and refinishing projects in the spring.
