Kam and Don Daughters were awarded the Ridgefield Arts Council’s annual Behind-the-Scenes Honor for their years of exceptional volunteer service at Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center. The awards ceremony, where volunteers from numerous arts organizations in the Ridgefield community were acknowledged, was held on May 6 in KTM&HC’s historic walled garden.
Kam Daughters, a volunteer at KTM&HC since 1996, began her record of service as a docent, giving tours to museum visitors. She served as president of the museum's board of directors in 2001, and she has been on several committees, including KTM&HC’s Capital Campaign and multiple Gala committees. Don Daughters has been an enthusiastic historical reenactor since 2017. He is particularly well-known for his portrayal of the heroic General Wooster at KTM&HC school tours and in the “Dunk Tank” during July 4 museum festivities. He has also acted in KTM&HC’s Lantern Light Tours.
“We are thrilled to recognize Kam and Don for their tireless service and on-going contributions,” said Rhonda Hill, KTM&HC board president. “Our organization depends on the hard work and passion of many volunteers, and Kam and Don demonstrate that commitment in all they do.”
