Help with the Courthouse Iron Gates Restoration Project
The Spokane Law Enforcement Museum and The Westerners, Spokane Corral are sponsoring the "Courthouse Iron Gates Restoration Project" and will be sharing a spot with the Washington State Patrol/Spokane Police Department at the Spokane Interstate Fair from Friday, September 11 through Sunday, September 20. The Fair is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. I have set up a schedule each of those 10 days: Shift #1: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Shift #2: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Shift #3: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. However, if someone can only work a certain time, I will gladly work around the schedule to accommodate those who would like to help.
Please call me at the SPLEM Historical office to schedule your time Mon. - Thurs. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 477-6449 (except Wed. mornings) or call me on my cell at 710-5669. There will be a sheet available for all volunteers I will get to you prior to the fair with all the facts sheets about the gates. The gates will be on display, we will be selling 1000 Natatorium books with money going toward the gate restoration project, and we plan to have the rocket from a ride at Natatorium Park on display also. I will have a canopy up over the table for shade. We would like to have Westerners brochures/information available on that table.
We will also be selling some museum items/SPD History Books, and will have donation jars for the gates and for the museum.
I will be calling the Fairgrounds Monday to find out about parking and passes for our volunteers.
I am also trying to get a photographer on board to take pictures with the gates, or rocket for $15.00 each. Five dollars will go towards the gates. Appreciatively yours, Sue Walker (SPLEM Secretary/Treasurer)
