Want to get involved in your community? Want to meet fun new people? Want to use your time and talents to make a difference?
Then mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21, between 1 and 4 p.m. and plan to attend the third annual Community Volunteer Open House at the Edmonds Historical Museum, 118 5th Ave.N. in downtown Edmonds.
Representatives from organizations who need your help will be on hand, including Cascadia Art Museum, Clothes for Kids, Edmonds Arts Festival, Edmonds in Bloom, Edmonds Center for the Arts, Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission, Edmonds Floretum Garden Club, Friends of the Edmonds Library and Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor Heritage.
Events managed by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, including Taste Edmonds, An Edmonds Kind of 4th, Edmonds Classic Car Show, Edmonds Trick-or-Treat, Edmonds Tree Lighting Ceremony and Clam Chowder Cook-Off will also be represented. The Edmonds Historical Museum will feature the Museum Garden Market and Summer Farmers’ Market, 4th of July Carnegie Library Float, Heritage Days, Halloween Haunted Museum, Scarecrow Festival and Museum Plaza improvements.
“We live in a very special place, and people who freely give of themselves are a big part of what makes it that way,” said Sandra Butterfield, Edmonds Historical Museum’s Volunteer Manager. “This is the perfect opportunity to meet directly with local organizations who need time and talents from those within our community.”
