Wooden Boat Crew

Spring Appeal

It's your support that keeps the Lewes Historical Society a premiere institution. The Lewes Historical Society will work with you and your advisors to design a plan that achieves your financial and philanthropic objectives. Gifts can be wonderfully simple, flexible and easy to make.

You may have received something in the mail about our spring appeal, but if not you can donate here:

Description: Boat Building volunteers help the society with the Family Boat Building program. These volunteers help create kits for families to build for the Family Boat Building weekend and will assist families during the building process. They may also attend outreach events to advertise the program as well as programs in classrooms to highlight the important role boat building played in Lewes History. These volunteers also work in the restoration of Society vessels and other tasks throughout the year relating to restoring or building boats.

Training: Boat Building volunteers will be receiving training in both specific woodworking skills as well as the appropriate safety training for individual tools and machines. Volunteers will also be required to attend a training session on working with children for the Family Boat Building Weekend.

Why this position is important: Boat Building volunteers are rekindling a traditional art in Lewes. These volunteers help a new generation of boat builders to learn the craft and provide a unique opportunity to share their skills with participants as well as the general public.
