(Neb)-Volunteers Still Needed For Mobile Children's Museum Chadron Visit
The city of Chadron is getting closer to having the 40 volunteers needed for this weekend's downtown visit by the Nebraska Children's Museum traveling exhibit, but there's still the chance the stay could be shortened if there aren't enough volunteers to man the various displays.
City officials say about 20 volunteers had stepped forward as of yesterday afternoon, most of them over 50 years of age, so the hope is that a lot more younger volunteers step forward.
There are 4 shifts to be manned, 1-4:45 and 4:45-8:30 tomorrow night, 10:00-1:45 and 1:45-5:30 on Saturday. Each shift will be preceeded by a half-hour training session.
The semi making up the central part of the Truckin' Through Nebraska exhibition will be in the city parking lot behind city hall...across Bordeaux Street from the KCSR/KBPY studios. There will also be outdoor displays, but city officials aren't sure where those will be in case of rainy and windy weather.
"Truckin' Through Nebraska" is an official Nebraska 150 Sesquicentennial event and its also one of the 80 stops on this year's Nebraska Passport program...which should bring even more visitors.
The Children's Museum traveling exhibition is intended to teach kids and families about Nebraska's history through stories, play, interactivity, and the latest technology...allowing them to explore their heritage and envision their future and career opportunities.
