Penobscot Marine Museum has scheduled Spring Cleanup & Volunteer Day on May 12. Volunteers will spend the day working alongside other friendly, energetic people while helping prepare the museum for the opening of its 2012 exhibit season. Breakfast and lunch will be served, and participants will learn about long-term volunteer positions in many departments.
There will be lots of grounds work: raking, gardening, preparing plantings, and pruning. Other jobs may include painting and paint prep, moving boats and other heavy objects, and light carpentry. For those who prefer indoor work, there will be cleaning, sweeping, mopping, dusting, washing windows and changing light bulbs. Another method of volunteering is to bring a potluck lunch item for the workers.
The event starts with breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and runs until 4:00 p.m.
Bring work gloves. Also handy may be rakes, pruning shears, brooms, rags, buckets, paint scrapers, wheelbarrows and pickup trucks.
