Volunteer Work Project Weekend
Event Date: 27 April 2019 10:00 to 28 April 2019 15:00
USS LST 393 Veterans Museum, one of America’s most historic warships, is having a volunteer fix-up Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28, from 10 am to 3 pm. The World War II veteran of three invasions -- including D-Day -- is moored at the Mart Dock in downtown Muskegon.
“We have a lot of projects we need help with” said museum board President Scott Grant. “If you’re handy with tools or even if you’ve never had one in your hands, we could use your help.”
“We need willingness more than skillfullness.”
There are several projects to work on, from landscaping to building. One of the most unusual jobs is to help restore the museum’s recently acquired 40 mm dual-mount anti-aircraft cannon.
Equipment will be supplied, but anyone with their own tools will be gratefully welcomed.
LST 393 will provide rolls and coffee for breakfast and hot dogs for lunch for those working.
Among the projects and skills needed are:
- General cleanup
Anyone interested in helping for any part of the weekend or with questions can call Grant at (231) 740-3503.
