The JP Tuesday Club is completely volunteer run. If you would like to share your time, expertise and enthusiasm with the JP Tuesday Club — a historic organization dedicated to improving the lives of our neighbors and preserving the Loring Greenough House and grounds for current and future generations — we welcome your participation!
It’s a great way to have fun and meet your neighbors.
Loring Greenough House Committees
House Management Committee manages the historic structure of the Loring Greenough House, including preservation, rehabilitation, systems and ongoing maintenance projects. The committee seeks volunteers with interests in historic preservation, architectural history, domestic and social history, research, building maintenance and hands-on involvement.
Landscape Committee manages the care, preservation, and advancement of the grounds of the Loring Greenough House. The immediate challenges are twofold: to bring the overall condition of the landscape to a higher level even as we make long-term plans to improve the health and viability of the property through the creation, funding, and implementation of a Landscape Master Plan. Daily progress is made as lawns, gardens and tree health are nurtured. The Master Plan Sub-Committee now begins the process of looking into the future to anticipate ever-changing needs. Volunteers are needed on all fronts, from yard care to landscape planning.
Collections Committee manages the long-term preservation and interpretation of the Club’s historical objects and archival materials and is looking for volunteers with one or more of the following skills: Interest in collections management or material culture; knowledge of archiving, records management, digitization, or online cataloging; photography, research, conservation; creativity, attention to detail, and a sense of humor. The Committee meets monthly, with projects occurring on an ongoing basis.
Programs Committee is responsible for developing and implementing dynamic Club sponsored events at the house throughout the year. Examples include our History Happy Hour series, movie nights, family events like the annual Egg Hunt, the Annual Garden Party, and the musical performances at the summertime Thursdays on the Lawn. The Committee is looking for enthusiastic, motivated people who are interested in event planning and community outreach to expand the current programming line-up.
Other committees are Education/Docents, Finance, Development, and Communications.
