Cascade Locks Park Association is seeking friendly volunteers interested in a fun, flexible opportunity to give their time to a key piece of the Ohio and Erie National Heritage Canalway at the Mustill Store Museum.
This is a chance to enjoy a beautiful setting and interact with the public. Store greeters help operate the store by welcoming guests, selling some items and acting as historical interpreters (training is provided). Opportunities also exist for historian/archive assistance, education programs, canal and park clean-up, office assistance and special events. Current museum hours are Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers work in three-hour shifts.
Students looking for service hours (must be at least 18 with transportation or accompanied by an adult), those enjoying retirement or anyone simply looking to be involved with the community could share their time and talents as part of this opportunity.
Volunteer training will take place at the Mustill Store Museum on Saturday, April 1 at 11 a.m. Training will last about one hour. The address is 57 W. North St., located in the Cascade Locks Park area.
For info, call Beth Leipold at (330) 374-5625 or email [email protected].
