November 4th Service Project Sites:

Gallatin Historical Society/Gallatin History Museum

Volunteers will be working with the founding organization called the Cooperative Program for Architectural Conservation at MSU in order to help save Montana's Cultural Resources. Volunteers will help deep clean the main hall of the museum, pull the display cabinets away from the wall, vacuum behind and remove some old pegboard above the cabinets. There will be some ladder work involved and a little heavy lifting.
