WILTON, Conn. -- The Wilton Historical Society has formed a new program for middle school students and tweens.

The program, called "The Ready Rangers!" will hold its first meeting Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

The program is specifically for students in grades five and up.

The Ready Rangers will meet once a month to get to know each other, have fun with a history-related craft or project (pizza, too), and hear about upcoming events where their help might be needed.

They may be asked to take tickets at an event, judge a contest, or assist with historic crafts and activities -- and have fun while helping.

It is a great opportunity for kids to learn about volunteering and participating in community events.

“We already know that we will need some brave volunteers to help out with our Things That Go Bump in the Night ghost event on Oct. 10,” said Leslie Nolan, executive director. "We are hoping some of our Ready Rangers can step into action when they get the call.”

The Ready Rangers will wear special T-shirts when they are helping, and receive certificates of appreciation at the end of the year.

All arrangements are by e-mail, and parents are kept informed.

For more information, contact museum educator Allison Reznik by email at education@wiltonhistorica.org or call (203)-762-7257.

The Wilton Historical Society, is at 224 Danbury Road/Route 7.
