GRAFTON – The Grafton Historical Society have named the recipients of their volunteer of the year awards.

The winners are Pam Hollander and Kristen Remillard. They will be honored during the society’s Annual Dinner Meeting and Awards on May 5. 

“Both Pam and ‘Kricky’ are dedicated to our mission of making history relevant to today and future generations,” the society wrote in a press release. 

Remillard serves on the board of directors. The society noted that she is a “wiz” with social media and has taken on a variety of roles. Remillard helped with the Third Grade History Days and introduced the students to the history of the buildings on the Common.

The society also mentioned her work with the First Friday Teas, Grafton Celebrates the Holidays, Community Reading Program and writing for the Community Advocate. 

“From the early days of Kristen’s service for the Grafton Historical Society, I could see a young woman who wanted her volunteer time to have an impact,” the society wrote. 

The society said that Hollander helped pack up the artifacts, documents, maps and books for their 2018 move to 71 Main Street.

As the coordinator for the society’s monthly programs, Hollander introduced new and innovative events. She worked with the high school Cultural Club on the proper way to display items in a museum.

The Grafton Historical Society’s Annual Dinner Meeting and Awards will be at the Post Office Pub beginning with drinks and socializing at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6 p.m.
