Fathom Volunteers – Garden Event – Grand Turk
by Lisa Turnbow-Talbot / Thursday, 13 December 2018 / Published in Museum News
A group of over 50 people from the Crown Princess volunteered to assist the Grand Turk museum on November 22nd. The amazing volunteers painted the garden fence, primed the garden wall, primed the shed, cleaned the garden and rebuilt the south gate. The participants of the Travel Deep program combine a vacation with an opportunity to give back. Adults and Children showed up ready to work!! We can not express our gratitude enough for what was accomplished by this group. Many of them actually thanked us for the opportunity! This improvement to the garden is a benefit to the entire community. As residents and visitors alike travel down Front street the improvement is immediately evident.
The volunteers even donated school supplies that we will be using at Christmas to give out free gift bags to children.
A special thanks goes to our local volunteers Ed & Teresa Grice, Edgar & Claudia Schnetz, Joe Smith and Hilary Day for also volunteering and helping us with the group that day. We would like to also thank Jack’s Shack for providing ice for the event.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE
WHO MADE THIS INCREDIBLE DAY POSSIBLE!
