A Volunteer Week

2014-08-20 18:10:19.000 – Gil, Carol & Dawn,  Summit Volunteers


Amazing! Unforgettable! Unique! Incredible! These words do not begin to describe what we have experienced during our volunteer week at the Mount Washington Observatory. Our week began with zero visibility, rain, low 40 degree temperatures and 80 mph wind gusts. We depart with clear skies, a beautiful sunrise and no wind. If hiking the Presidentials, viewing beautiful sunrises, sunsets and experiencing extreme weather sound appealing you should consider volunteering a week of you time! We became a part of the MWO and MWO Museum family. Gil and Carol prepared meals, cleaned, and performed tasks as needed to make the staff feel like they are at home. Dawn greeted visitors in the Museum, answered questions, led Observatory tours, and helped spread the word about how important MWO Memberships are to the success of the organization.

We encourage you to visit the MWO website to donate by becoming either a volunteer or a member of the Mount Washington Observatory.
