The Silver City Museum seeks volunteers and cake donors for the Ice Cream Social from 11am-4pm on July 4th.
Every July 4th, Museum volunteers mingle with Independence Day celebrants, serve them refreshments, sell tickets, listen to live music, play traditional children’s games, dress up in costume, and set up tents and chairs.
Volunteers will be provided catered lunch as well as free tickets good for a variety of treats and games. Shifts are available for many positions throughout the day.
Absolutely no experience is necessary, but volunteers with special skills like face-painting or juggling are invited to contribute their talents to make this event really special!
Volunteers also run the Cake Walk, a musical-chair-like game of chance set to music where a winner gets an entire cake each round. Each year the Museum gives away over 70 cakes, all of which are donated by individuals, organizations, and businesses.
We are again acknowledging cake donors with fun mafia-themed signage! Donating 6 or more cakes (or $75) will earn the title of Cake Kingpin. 4-5 cakes (or $50) make you a Boss Baker, and simply donating 3 cakes (or $25) will get you, or your group or business acknowledged as a Crazy Cakerino.
This annual event would not be possible without the many volunteers who return year after year, and the new ones who join the Museum family for our signature event!
Anyone interested in volunteering or donating cake should contact Volunteer Coordinator Jo Lutz at 575-597-0229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
