A Volunteer Day is planned Saturday, March 31 at the Old Dominion Historic Mine Park; with spring ramping up, there will be plenty of cleanup to do to get ready for the warm weather. Community and civic groups and individuals are invited to come out and help continue the work on the park. Metal rakes and wheelbarrows are especially needed for the work day. Volunteers are welcome to come out between 8 am and noon. Work will range from cleaning trails and display areas to working on the parking area and signage. The work will be under way from 8 am through the morning. Water and snacks will be provided, and it is suggested that volunteers wear long pants and closed toe shoes and bring gloves, sunscreen and a hat. Anyone with tools they would donate use of for the day such as metal rakes, hoes, clippers wheelbarrows that could be used on the trails is invited to bring them.
As a walking park, the OD is a wonderful addition to Globe’s park system with trails ranging from easy to moderate. And each trail offers a wealth of information on the history of the mine, Globe and mining in general. Old Dominion Park access is off of Murphy Street near DeMarco’s. If you haven’t been there lately, take a few hours during this beautiful fall weather and check it out.
Water and snacks will be provided and first time volunteers will receive a t-shirt.
If your group is interested in participating, please leave your contact information with the chamber of commerce, 425-4495. The chamber is working with the community volunteer group that has been hard at work for many years to make the park and its amenities a reality. All volunteers are welcome to help with this cleanup effort.
