Help! Emergency Work days, HGTV coming! HGTV has requested permission to feature the Cape Charles Museum in an upcoming episode of their “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” series: http://www.hgtv.com/shows/beachfront-bargain-hunt
The couple they are following has three children, ages 4, 6, and 8. One of the kids is a huge train buff, so they are especially interested in filming outside, particularly in the back by the caboose. It’s a great opportunity to get our Museum some well-deserved recognition as the overall community asset we are.
Here’s the catch. They are filming in Cape Charles June 9-12, which means we have only a few days to do what we can to smarten up the grounds. We’ve done a critical walk around, and we could really do with some serious emergency lawn and garden repair help. In particular, people with weed whackers to clean up the area around the cars and tracks, and anyone willing to pitch in on cleaning and planting the side bed next to the ramp.
Kimb will be out there with her assorted implements of mass deforestation and a few flats of bedding plants on most of Monday and Tuesday morning from 10am until market set-up. Please let us know if and when you can join us! Make sure to bring garden tools, spare plants, and willing hands. Any and all help with this will be wonderful!
Contact Kimb L. Denny (phone or text) at 607-6483 or at the Museum at 331-1008 or just show up to help.
