Be a part of the Historical Society. Help make Pioneer Day a success!

Be a part of the Historical Society. Help out now.

We are so grateful to all our members and supporters who help us conserve and curate two of Sarasota’s oldest buildings in one of our pristine parks, and who participate in our monthly meetings, special events and fund raisers.

This month, we could use some specific help. They range from easy-as-pie to lace on your working shoes. Please choose one or more, and give a few hours to helping HSOSC be a part of Sarasota for years to come!
You can:
* Print out and post this flyer for Pioneer Day. Post it in your community to let neighbors know about this all-ages event on Saturday November 12. The more people who come to see what we have to offer, the more community support we can count on. More details on Pioneer Day in Pioneer Park.
* Go through your underloved possessions
and donate any books you won’t read again, or vintage items you have lost your love for, to the Historical Society’s booth in the Crocker Church during Pioneer Day. Drop your donations off at the HS office Mon-Fri 10 to 2, or email Marsha Fottler at with questions or if you need pickup. Please do this now, so she can ready our sales booth!
