How Can You Help?
During this incredibly unprecedented moment in current history, we, at the Historic Village at Allaire want you to know how thankful we are to have supporters and caring friends in the Allaire community. I am writing to you to give an update on what is happening at the village, and how you can keep in touch with us in the coming weeks.
Currently, the village is closed to both the public and our volunteers. Events have been postponed (not cancelled) and we are already looking forward, in an effort to be up and running again as soon as possible. Our visitors should know we are exploring all areas of outreach at this time, and by visiting our Facebook pages and web site you will find lots of videos and activities to download and enjoy until we can get together again.
We will continue to pursue our mission to bring the 19th century alive through educational activities, and hopefully, have the opportunity to introduce you to some of our fantastic interpreters who will be presenting information about their roles in our Allaire community. The Howell Works of 1836 was a community that worked together to create something wonderful and unique – the Allaire Village of 2020 is a community with the same goal in mind – our supporters are instrumental in our getting there – thank you again!
In 1822 James P. Allaire purchased the property that the Historic Village at Allaire occupies today. We look forward to welcome you the village in the near future so you can once again experience the romance and atmosphere of his grand experiment at the dawn of the industrial revolution. We know we are all experiencing emotional and financial anxiety at this uncertain time. Your support through future ticketed events, program attendance, memberships, and charitable gifts, will be crucial to our organization. If you are able to support us in any way, please know that whatever you are able to give is greatly needed and appreciated.
Here at the Historic Village, we will continue to reach out through our social media platforms, and our Robly emails, directing you to many of our on-line activities. We are also accessible through email at : firstname.lastname@example.org – where we will be more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have – if we can help, WE WILL. That’s what a community does!
With mutual support and caring we can come through this current crisis and hopefully forge new relationships that will enrich us, and our organizations in the years to come.
Stay well and strong. We look forward to seeing you soon.
