CALLING ALL HISTORY BUFFS - Brighton Historic Preservation Commission seeks volunteers
The Brighton Historic Preservation Commission (BHPC) has announced its newly developed volunteer program.
The program will begin Thursday, Nov. 6 and held every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. thereafter. Volunteers are not required to commit to the program in advance but instead encouraged to drop-in when their schedule permits.
Each volunteer will be asked to help organize, archive and scan historical documents.
“This is a unique opportunity to sort through the treasures of Brighton’s fascinating past,” said Aja Tibbs, Long Range and Historic Preservation Planner. “This is a great way to earn volunteer hours needed for school or to give back to your community.”
Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. There is maximum of four volunteers per session.
For more information, contact Aja Tibbs at 303-655-2015.
