Dear PPS Volunteers,

The 2017 Providence Preservation Society Festival of Historic Houses is coming soon! I am excited about the plans for this year's Festival and I know you will want to participate. The Festival will be held on Saturday, June 3, from 10 am - 4 pm. 

This year's Festival will take place in the Upper Elmwood District. More information on the Festival can be found at We will need your help to make this event a success! Your interest and willingness to volunteer for the Festival of Historic Houses is tremendously appreciated. We enthusiastically welcome both new and experienced volunteers. Please invite your friends, relatives, neighbors, and anyone that might be interested in this event to come along and be part of your team. All volunteers will receive FREE admission to Saturday's tour.  

Two one-hour volunteer training meetings will be offered, one on Saturday, May 6 at 10:30 am, and the other on Thursday, May 11 at 5:30 pm in the Old State House at 150 Benefit Street (the offices of the RI Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission). You must attend one of these meetings, where all the Festival information will be available and where any questions you may have will be answered. You will also receive your assignment at that time and be able to meet your fellow volunteers. Light refreshments will be served.   

I look forward to hearing from you soon and working with you on this year's Festival of Historic Houses. Thank you in advance for your dedication and support!
