COLCHESTER — A team of gardening volunteers, all over age 70, gathered recently to help beautify the grounds at The Parsonage on Main Street, headquarters of the Colchester Historical Society.

The soil was prepped, weeds pulled and beautiful annuals were planted, fertilized and watered.

The Historical Society hopes to resume public programs and meetings in September. Meanwhile, they plan to re-open the Log Schoolhouse to visitors at Airport Park very soon and will need weekend volunteer hosts.
