Due to the Covid 19 virus, FEBT and the East Broad Top Foundation would like all volunteers to provide their own PPE (face masks, gloves, sanitizer). We will require physical distancing and masking, even if you have been fully vaccinated.
Projects we will be working on:
We are looking for up to 10 people to assist with this project. Volunteers will be clearing out the storage container that has been located at Robertsdale since the beginning of restoration work in the 1980s. The container contains a variety of restoration materials, EBT artifacts and useless junk.
Under the guidance of one of FEBT’s founding fathers, volunteers will transport historic or useful items to the appropriate storage location in the museum buildings, and garbage to and on-site dumpster. Once empty, the container will be professionally removed from the property, returning it closer to its historic appearance.
Bring good sturdy work gloves. Be prepared for dirty, dusty, musty work. Hand trucks or carts may come in handy. Lifting straps may also be useful.
You must be 18 and a member of the FEBT ( or join at the work site.) These are insurance requirements.
