Current Members

Current members are strongly encouraged to get involved with the Historical Society and the Museum–there’s something for everyone’s interest!

Your membership and support are very much appreciated and we hope you can take pride in the contribution you are making to the preservation of Kent’s heritage!

Here are a few ways you can participate:

Board Meetings

All members, as well as the public, are invited to attend the monthly GKHS Board meetings, the first Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. Important information about the Museum and the Society is discussed at meetings.

Volunteering

The Museum always welcomes volunteers, both members and the public. There are many volunteer opportunities–see the Volunteer page for information.

Programs

The Museum invites members to attend Kent Chronicles, a history discussion group, and GKHS Presents, a history lecture and performance series (members get a discount!).

Newsletter

All members are invited to contribute to our quarterly newsletter, the Recorder. Take a look at the Contribution Guidelines.

Events

  • The Museum makes a great venue for your private or company event, including birthday parties, teas, weddings and receptions, even company holiday parties, and members get a great discount on the deposit. Visit the Hold an Event page and contact the Museum office for more information.
  • If you would like to organize and/or host a GKHS-sponsored, non-program event or fundraiser, please contact the Museum office and fill out an Event Request Form. This form helps the Museum staff efficiently facilitate and accommodate your event. (Examples of past events that fell into this category were the Memorial Day ceremony and the Ed Crawford Speaker event.)
