That the Newington Historical Society Could Lengthen Your Life ? 

   It’s true!  According to a previously published report in one of the medical journals, your       
   chances  of dying in the next year will be reduced  if you take an active part in a social  

   Volunteers contribute greatly to the success of any historical society.  In many instances, 
   the volunteer is the only link between the organization and the community.  

   Consider joining a committee. Only a few hours a month could offer you a chance  to

   you an opportunity to learn of our heritage as you contribute to an organization whose primary  
   goal is to promote interest and appreciation of Newington history.
