Coastal Discovery Museum thankful for volunteers

During April, the Coastal Discovery Museum welcomed two groups of volunteers to the Honey Horn property, and we wanted to express our most sincere thanks to them. The ages varied, but the hard work was greatly appreciated; the grounds look beautiful.

On April 21, a group of University of Kentucky students, in town for their Fraternity Formal weekend, donated their time (and their dates' time) to give 118 hours of weeding the Heritage Garden, mulching the grape arbor, cleaning exhibit panels, clearing landscape debris and litter. The members of Beta Theta Pi and their dates were so helpful to the museum and a great bunch of students to work with. We're already planning on a return visit next spring.

On April 25, nine members of the local Penn State University Alumni Association came for their annual volunteer morning at the museum. These Lowcountry residents tidied the gift store and permanent exhibits, assisted with the layout for the Art Market and helped with some grounds upkeep. This annual visit is always appreciated.

The Coastal Discovery Museum appreciates its volunteers -- and these two groups are no exception. Thank you to all.
