The nonprofit Antelope Valley Indian Museum has put out a call for volunteers to help make fresh garland and vintage-style decorations so the Museum looks and smells festive for the upcoming “Holidays on the Homestead” event on Saturday, Dec. 7.
Museum decorating days will be Tuesday, December 3 and Friday, December 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and finally Wednesday, December 4 from 1-5 p.m.
All ages and experience levels are invited to help. It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit, and a perfect project to meet student volunteering requirements.
Volunteers may arrive at any time during the activity hours and enjoy hot chocolate, coffee, and holiday music while they work.
Volunteers may also take home their own small creation made from the extra tree trimmings.
After three hours of service, volunteers will receive a free pass for the “Holidays on the Homestead” event.
Originally a 1930s homestead, the museum’s historic grounds will be decorated in vintage holiday style and feature live acoustic music around a campfire, a chili cook-off, a tour of the grounds, a country craft boutique, real cowboy coffee brewed over the fire, and hot chocolate or cider for the kids.
Garland volunteers are asked to email Jean.Rhyne@parks.ca.gov to RSVP for park entrance authorization, or for more information about the activity.
The Antelope Valley Indian Museum is located at 15701 East Avenue M, Lancaster (near Lake Los Angeles).
From Highway 14, take the Avenue K east offramp, turn right on 150th Street East, then left on East Avenue M. The museum is on the left.
