Fall Volunteer OpportunitiesAugust 31st, 2015
The fall is my favorite season. I love that the days are still warm but the nights are crisp! I also enjoy the exciting volunteer opportunities.
You may have heard about the Second Annual How-To Festival and Block Party taking place Saturday, September 12 from 10am – 3pm. Last year, 300 people joined us for short, FREE sessions learning everything from how to tie a bow tie, Mongolian throat singing, how to write a press release and how to give an elevator speech and everything in between! Classes were taught by library staff members, local business owners and professionals in their field.
This year, we are kicking it up a notch. Thanks to the generous support of the Unitarian Universalist Church and the Town of Brunswick, we are able to close Middle Street and host events in both Curtis Memorial Library as well as the church. Our lawns will be covered in food providers, bouncy castles and bands. We are striving to make this a fun, community block party with a side of financial information to celebrate the start of our year long, community wide financial literacy programming!
That is where volunteers come in! We need 25 people to help us run the day. From helping to guide Slugger the Portland Sea Dogs mascot to supervising children’s crafts such as painting piggy banks, we need your help! Click here to sign up!
Mark your calendars for this time honored volunteer event – The Curtis Friends Outdoor Clean Up! Volunteers will spend a (hopefully) crisp fall morning with Building Supervisor Melissa Hall weeding, raking and laying down mulch to help put the gardens to bed for the winter. The Clean Up takes place Saturday, November 7 from 9am – 12pm with lunch generously provided by the Curtis Friends afterwards. Click here to sign up!
