Volunteers still are needed to help build Dragon Hollow, the new play area next to A Carousel for Missoula that will be constructed during a six-day period later this month in downtown Missoula.
In particular, said Theresa Cox of the Carousel, workers are needed for two critical days, Saturday, May 19, and Sunday, May 20. She estimated that 300 workers will be needed for each of three shifts on those days; Currently, she said, only about 75 to 100 workers have volunteered for the shifts.
Cox said that no particular construction or carpentry skills will be required from volunteers, although skilled workers always will be welcome on the project. "We can find a job for anybody," she said.
The shifts that need to be staffed are from 8 a.m. to noon, 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to dark. She said food will be served to volunteers at noon and 5 p.m. Volunteers 10 years old and up are welcome on the project, and child care will be available for younger children. Cox said liability issues prevent children under 10 from working on the project.
Workers last weekend did some preliminary work for the full-fledged six-day building project. The six-day construction phase that will end with the finished play area is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 15.
Cox said workers also are needed for some of the weekday afternoon shifts.
