Each year Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont opens up the campus to an army of volunteers for Volunteer Work Day. This year’s work day is Nov. 10 and begins at 8:30 a.m. It is a fun day filled with great work projects that benefit Tremont’s buildings, campus and trails. These projects ultimately benefit Tremont’s participants and reflect on our relationship with Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Sam Crowe, Tremont’s facilities manager said, “If it were not for Volunteer Work Day a lot of these projects would not get done. The volunteers, over the past few years, have helped the maintenance department make great strides in improving the overall appearance of our campus and nearby trails. In helping us, volunteers are also helping to maintain the beauty of this amazing national park.”
The day begins with a short rally, making work groups and delegating projects. A tremendous lunch is provided for everyone. Volunteering is a small way of saying how much we appreciate Tremont and its mission, “connecting people and nature.” All are invited to come out and join us for Volunteer Work Day.
Registration is not necessary but we would appreciate calls so we know how many to expect for lunch. For more information or to be counted for lunch, call 865-448-6709.
