Nick Foster, curator of the Wilton Historical Society, is scheduled to speak about Wilton’s Farm Team Baseball History at this Wednesday’s Kiwanis Club of Wilton lunch meeting. Interested members of the community who are interested in the topic are invited to attend.

Foster serves as the office manager, collections manager and membership coordinator for the Wilton Historical Society, as well as acts as a part time curator. He received his undergraduate degree in history from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 2013. In 2016, he graduated from Syracuse University with a Master’s degree in museum studies, and began working for the Wilton Historical Society in July that same year. Foster has worked for a variety of historical institutions and museums over the past few years, including the Erie Canal Museum, the Syracuse University Art Galleries, and the SUNY Upstate Medical University Historical Collections.

Foster maintains a lifelong interest in baseball and its history. He played baseball for over a decade, and has represented teams from his hometown of Trumbull in leagues of all levels. His interest in the sport inspired him to curate the Wilton Historical Society’s latest exhibition, “Farm Team:  50 Years of Wilton Baseball,” which is currently on display.

Non members are welcome to join the Kiwanis Club this Wednesday, May 31, for lunch and the presentation, but reservations are required and can be made by calling Bud Taylor at 203.354.0208. The club meets weekly at the Wilton Episcopal Presbyterian Complex (WEPCO) on New Canaan Rd. from noon-1:30 p.m. every Wednesday for lunch and a speaker.
