MUSEUM VOLUNTEER WORK WEEK/DAYS

12 posts in this topic

Quite a few of you have asked what you can do to help and many of you have already stepped up in various capacities. Please know your help is genuinely appreciated.

 

We are trying to put together a work week for the Museum.  The dates for the work week will be August 9th-15th, 2017. We would like to make this a fun work event with music, food, friends and fun.  There are numerous and immediate tasks we need to address/complete, including but not limited to the following:

 

  •  We need volunteers to assist in manning the Museum booth at the Watermelon Festival August 10th-12th
  •  We need volunteers to assist in basement cleaning/demolition 
  •  We need volunteers to assist in building shelves in the basement to accommodate PWK's professional library.
  •  We need volunteers to assist in inventory, including artifacts and archives

 

We have other areas that will also require volunteer helpers.  We need your help, whether it's for a day, a few days or the entire time!   If we can accomplish most of these tasks we will be well on our way in achieving most of our short term goals.  If you are interested in helping ANYTIME during this period, please comment below or PM me for further details.

 

Camping is available at Fair Park (where the Watermelon Festival is being held for a nominal fee.  Camping is also available at Rodney's. Accommodations are also available at Super8 for about $50 per night.

 

FEEL FREE TO COMMENT OR PM ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

I would love  to help, but that is in the middle of my busiest period at work...basically from 1 August thru 20 October, with about a one-week respite of only 8-hour days around the middle of September.  Sorry!  On the up-side, this may be the last year I have doing this...seriously considering retiring before that time of next year!

pappyIII and I are headed for Hope and the Klipsch booth at the Watermelon Festival. 80% chance of rain. The Boy Scout motto comes to mind.

OK, we were also prepared to pitch-in where needed, and that was not at the Klipsch booth. We joined the labor pool at the museum. It was a productive day. I need rest now. And I need another drink. And I need a good cigar. Some Alieve and a good movie on TV might also be nice. Did I mention that I'm 67? I probably didn't mention that early enough.

 

It really was a good work day, and it helped to be in good company. I won't mention any names, since they are so often associated with great fanfare on the Forum.

 

Please support the Klipsch museum; it supports us.

Greetings from the Klipsch booth at the Watermelon Festival in Hope. I am really enjoying meeting the people here and talking Klipsch. I'm also hearing stories about PWK and his wife from many people that knew them. The food here is awesome as well.

@hogwylde09 thank you for all your help. We could not have gotten so much accomplished without all of you.
