The Georgina Historical Society, as a not-for-profit organization, collects, preserves, promotes and interprets the rich history and heritage of all communities now known as the Town of Georgina.

Volunteering

The Georgina Historical Society and the Georgina Pioneer Village and Archives are here for you. They are part of the fabric of Georgina and, we think, part of what makes Georgina a special place to live. While we embrace the modern, we are also mindful of our heritage.

We are witnessing a huge growth in our community. There are many reasons why people are coming here. All are welcome to become involved with the Georgina Historical Society. The story of our founding families and early pioneers residents is a compelling one, and becomes part of our shared heritage. Becoming involved will help you feel closer to this community.

 

Our Society participates actively in a number of events in both the Georgina Pioneer Village and Archives, and in the community at large. All of the events rely greatly on volunteer participation and membership involvement for their success. You can get involved in several ways with us:

 

  • Become a member
  • Volunteering for our events, activities, and fund-raising.
  • Complete and submit our Volunteer Application Form.
  • Attend and support our events.
  • Help support us with your donations of time, money, and/or artifacts.
