Site History Committee looking for new members

The Fermilab Site History Committee is looking for new members!

Each year, volunteers on this committee organize a picnic for the families of the people who used to live on the Fermilab site before the area was selected as the location of the lab in 1966. The next picnic will be this September. It’s a great opportunity for the former residents to reconnect with one another and for committee volunteers to learn about the history of the site and meet some great people.

The time commitment is small; the committee has a few planning meetings before the picnic and spends about half a day on a Saturday running the picnic. If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Valerie Higgins (
