LOCAL STUDENTS GIVE BACK

Students from the Cumberland County Technical Education Center visited the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society recently to work on several projects at the museum. The event was organized by CCTEC History Teacher and VHAS Trustee Jordan Palmieri along with two other CCTEC teachers and Interact Club Advisers, Tim Campbell and Sarah Bernhardt. At the site, the students sanded and painted the museum's basement windows, built a brick frame around the Vineland City Time Capsule, and painted the Little Free Library. They also installed some historic hitching posts and cleaned the small Statue of Liberty that stands on the museum grounds. The day was very productive and the students made a valuable contribution to the Society. Board president Sandra Hearing expressed her appreciation to the students and said she is looking forward to working with CCTEC again on more projects to continue to preserve local history.
