The Bobby Davis Museum and Park is looking for volunteer groups to participate in an Adopt-a-Bed program. This opportunity to help beautify the park is available to individuals and groups, civic organizations, churches, schools, and partnerships of any of these groups. Beds throughout the park, of various sizes, shapes, and shades, are available for adoption.
All anyone has to do is contact the Park’s Volunteer board with an interest. The board wants to ensure that plantings fit into the general plan of the park, and we also want to ensure that adopters have the support they need to maintain their beds.
We will be holding community work days in the park on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, beginning in May (Tuesday, May 6 from 5:00 p.m. through dusk) and continuing through mid-October. These will be times when volunteers can pool resources, including tools provided by Pathfinders of Perry County, and help one another. These days will also be announced to the entire community in the hopes there will be a flexible pool of labor. Of course, volunteerism is not limited to these days.
We hope members of the community will consider helping the Bobby Davis Park remain one of Hazard’s showplaces. Gardening is healthy exercise that helps build community.
For more information, contact Martha Quigley at the Bobby Davis Museum (439-4325), or board member Tim Dunn, the park’s volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 606-378-2399. We’re also available through Facebook.
