The Friends of the Shakers, a non-profit support organization, holds multiple work days at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village. You'll spend the day working at various assignments suitable for all ages and abilities, indoors and outside. Work days bring chores, but fellowship as well.
Everyone shares the noon meal, conversation, and laughter. If you can, please bring a potluck side dish or dessert to share (drop-off food at sign-in table).
Members and volunteers will help ready the Village for winter by raking, winterizing the Herb Garden, picking and storing pumpkins, cleaning windows, stacking wood, working on herbs in the Shaker herb department, and so much more!
Chores start at 9 am and last until 3 pm. Pre-registration is appreciated- please invite your friends to join us! You do not have to be a member to participate- all are welcome.
You are welcome to arrive at any time and stay for as long as you are able to.
There will be a sign-in table located on the lawn next to the Brick Dwelling House and a task list to choose from at sign-in. All tools will be supplied but if you have a favorite pair of work gloves, feel free to wear them! Please dress for appropriate weather.
If you have any questions or have trouble with this form, call 207-926-4597 or email email@example.com
