The Museum has registered with the Tim Hortons Cleaning the Capital campaign and the cleanup will take place on Monday, May 2nd  from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The rain date is Tuesday, May 3rd.

Help will be needed sweeping sidewalks, picking up litter, raking and seeding the lawn, pruning shrubs, prepping garden beds and planting. The Museum will have a supply of plastic gloves but suggests bringing your own garden gloves if you have them.

Whether you can help for the whole day or just a couple of hours, all cleanup contributions are welcome. And if students are in need of last minute volunteer hours and have time in their school schedule to lend a hand, staff will gladly sign their forms.

Oh, and lunch is on us! It’s the least we can do.
