Each year, the Society relies on nearly 250 volunteers to develop and mount exhibits at the Museum and in the schools, to run an antiques appraiser series, organize a house tour, act as docents at the Museum, work with students in the Chappaqua schools, run the annual Chappaqua Antiques Show, assist with clerical duties, and provide special event assistance for a total of about 5,000 hours.
