Keep the Legacy Alive

You can support us in any number of ways: with your time or with your donations.


Weymouth Center for Arts & Humanities offers a variety of volunteer service opportunities for every age, experience level, and skill set. Whether you commit to a short-term event or a long-term project, your help is greatly appreciated.

For decades, the Women of Weymouth have gathered monthly to enjoy informative programs and plan activities for the Weymouth membership in order to raise funds to care for the Boyd House. This work continues in full measure today.

Membership is open to all women who are members of Weymouth in good standing. Monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month: January-May and September-November.

Meetings begin at 9:30 a.m. with coffee, followed by a short business meeting, and conclude with a guest speaker. Guests are most welcome and meetings are free and open to the public, except of the final meeting of the year in May.  Women in this group are from all over and bring a great variety of interests and expertise, insight and laughter to all gatherings!

Weymouth Dirt Gardeners are a group of volunteers who meet weekly year-round to maintain our stately gardens and grounds for the whole community to enjoy, and make Weymouth a destination for visitors statewide. Regular activities include mild-moderate outdoor physical labor and maintenance. You do not need a green thumb to start, but we guarantee that you’ll have one after working with some of this area’s most dedicated gardeners! Dirt Gardeners gather Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 am-12 pm. Come grow with us!
