Volunteer with LMS!

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please read the message below from Shirley:

LMS has a Heritage Boat Festival on Sat. May 27th and a Pirate Day Kids’ Festival on Sat. June 3rd. The festivals begin at 10 am and go until about 3 pm.

Are you going to be here on those dates? If you are able to attend I would really appreciate your help greeting people in the Maritime Museum and encouraging them to look at our exhibits and sign our guest book.

We also have the Sea Life Centre where we are planning some hands-on activities and we will need help there too. You can think about where you might like to help out if you are available.

Please let me know if you are able to assist those two days and how you might like to help. I hope to get enough volunteers so you would only need to be there for an hour or so.

Once I have a list of volunteers I will send you a Time Schedule. Thanks.

Best Regards,
Shirley Blackstaff
