Museum Seeks Additional Helpers on Volunteer Day to Prepare for May Opening
An association of Yale alumni has selected Penobscot Marine Museum as the beneficiary of its annual day of service. The museum has responded by turning the May 14 event into a broader Spring Cleanup & Volunteer Day, with the goal of preparing its campus for opening day.
On May 14, blue-hatted members of the Yale Alumni Association of Eastern Maine will converge on Searsport to rake garden beds, move boats, prep woodwork for painting and perform other tasks. "Community service is an important tradition at Yale," said Steven M. Feinstein, the group's coordinator. "Every year, Yale alumni groups around the world select organizations to assist on the Yale Day of Service. For 2011, we're delighted to work with Penobscot Marine Museum, one of the premier cultural institutions in Maine."
