Our Volunteer Community
From helping us with mailings to making sure our special events run smoothly, our volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Many are workshop members who want to show their appreciation for what they have learned about themselves and the writing process through Herstory, or who just want to get more involved in the programs we offer. Others are dear friends who believe in our mission and, knowing of our limited resources, donate their expertise and time so that we can maintain existing programs and take on new projects as the need arises.
Alan Gold, a freelance book designer, retired from a 20-year staff position at Cambridge University Press, gifted us with the design of all of our books.
Tammy Lea, of TS Graphix, has been our graphic designer and webmaster for a number of years, donating many hours of her time, to help us with ongoing work and special projects, such as our annual gala journal. We are so very grateful for all that she has done and continues to do for the Herstory community.
Bruce Weed, of Bruce Weed Computers, started with us when our main office was an 8 x 10 room in Sag Harbor, gradually fell in love with the program, and began to travel over a 50-mile radius, wherever there was a Herstory writer trying to work with a donated “dinosaur.” He has made countless trips from his East Hampton base to our new Centereach office, setting us up, creating systems for remote access and allowing us to work more and more easily on this Long Island of ours.
