Work Weekends 2019

The Volunteer Work Weekends are a unique way for the Chalfonte to prepare for a new season & for her to rest for the winter. As today, the early volunteers were Plumbers, Painters, Electricians, and Master Gardeners bringing their individual talents to each project - all for the grand old Hotel in a beautiful seaside resort!

No season can be complete without the support from our Work Weekend Warriors! Our sincere gratitude to everyone's hands, strength, perspiration and paint splatter that have been contributed over the years.

2019 Work Weekend Dates

Spring: April 26th through the 28th

Closing the hotel is the exact opposite of opening: removing awnings; end of season repairs; cleaning & closing up.
