The Greenwich Historical Society feted its volunteers with a celebratory cocktail reception at the Round Hill Club on April 24 that was sponsored by the Round Hill Partners.

Helen Dixon was named volunteer of the year for her “invaluable service” in helping to manage a number of site improvement projects. In honoring Ms. Dixon, Executive Director Debra Mecky made note of her perseverance, diplomacy and versatility as crucial to maintaining and expanding the Bush-Holley Historic site in the recent past. Ms. Dixon’s first volunteer experience at the Historical Society was as a volunteer docent.

Outgoing Antiquarius Boutique chair Killeen Faughnan and outgoing Holiday House Tour chairs Wendy Hearn, Leigh Ann Ryan and Catherine Tompkins were honored for their leadership. Bea Crumbine was also recognized for community collaboration in the creation of the Historical Society’s current exhibition, From Italy to America.

Comedienne and Post contributor Jane Condon entertained and wrapped up the evening with a unique and personal take on volunteerism.

More than 80 volunteers were in attendance, and all were saluted for the many ways in which they support history, preservation and education in the community.
