The House Management Committee is an energetic and committed group of volunteers that has the responsibility of maintaining, preserving and managing the historic structure and fascinating collections of the Loring-Greenough House. Using established historic preservation and museum guidelines, this group cares for all of the physical aspects relating to this unique colonial mansion.

Committee members are involved in researching objects and materials, inventorying the collection on a regular basis; facilitating public access; answering reference requests regarding the collection and archives; promoting the welfare of the collection and archives in all Club activities; and maintaining the collection to the highest professional standards. The Committee meets monthly, with projects occuring on an ongoing basis. The Collections Committee is always looking for volunteers with one or more of the following skills:
- Interest in collections management or material culture
- knowledge of records management
- digitization, or online cataloging
- conservation; creativity, attention to detail, and a sense of humor
Landscape & Grounds
This committee is responsible for stewardship for the historic grounds and gardens at the Loring-Greenough House. We meet to discuss design and history of the site, new capital improvements and maintenance. Members participate in several annual events including a plant sale fundraiser in the spring.
Development & Fundraising
This group develops fundraising strategies and action steps to provide for ongoing financial support for operating and capital expenses, and endowment-building contributions. In addition to identifying and implementing means to generate earned income, members of this committee also participate in the annual fund drive for individual support and in writing grants to corporate, foundation, and government sources.
Programs & Events
This vibrant group of volunteers organizes programs and events on behalf of the JP Tuesday Club to build community, share knowledge, and raise support and awareness.
Education & Outreach
The Committee on Education and Outreach functions as an information gathering and disseminating agency within the Club, in the context of its mission at the Loring-Greenough House. Relying on research undertaken by Club members and by professional consultants, the Committee adapts such material for further publication or other formats, such as interpretive signage, brochures, and lectures, suitable for sharing with various group audiences. The Committee can also initiate its own research and interpretive projects. It works closely with the House and Program Committees to ensure the continuing growth of our knowledge about the House and its history and to make such information available to the widest, most diverse public in the most instructive and attractive fashion.
This group of publicity savvy volunteers is helping to shape and convey information about the House and the Tuesday Club. This committee seeks members with a good aesthetic eye and sensibility about the media. They occasionally create brochures or invitations. This group develops media campaigns to inform the public about the mission of the Club, the history of the house and grounds, and to create buzz and excitement around activities and events. If you can help with this,
The Membership Committee together with the Publicity Committee will begin this summer to plan a membership drive. If you want to get the word out about the House and Club, and bring your friends to this great place, this is the group for you.
