Opportunity to win Disney Hopper Passes at Spring Park Clean-Up;
NMGL Spring hours resume
April 1, 2019 (Toledo, OH) – The National Museum of the Great Lakes will be hosting a series of volunteer days to provide those in the community an opportunity to get involved with the museum while helping us prepare for the upcoming busy season.
Volunteer Open House – Saturday, April 6th @ 2:00pm.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in volunteering at the museum to get a better idea of what we are looking for and how we can match volunteer talents with one of the many opportunities available. We are looking for tour guides, field trip facilitators, museum exhibit attendants, greeters, landscapers, weed pullers, deck swabbers, brass polishers, cobweb chasers, window washers, letter folders, label stickers, litter collectors and so much more. If you can imagine it, we probably need the help.
Light refreshments will be available so please let us know if you are planning to attend so that we can plan accordingly. Please RSVP at – www.inlandseas.org/events
Spring Park Clean-Up – Saturday & Sunday, April 27th & 28th @ 9:00am-5:00pm both days
NMGL is hosting a Spring Volunteer Park Clean-up weekend. NMGL is partnering with the Disney Points of Light program to promote family involvement within our community while preparing the museum grounds for a busy spring season. Whether you can plant flowers, spread mulch or pick up trash, we have jobs for all ages.
Bring the whole family! Whoever volunteers a minimum of two hours of their time, big or little, will be entered into a raffle to win Disney Hopper Passes. The more volunteers we have on the grounds, the more Hopper Passes we get to raffle off. Increase your odds of winning by getting more people involved.
Please RSVP at – www.inlandseas.org/events
