The will host a day of family fun to support — it’s campaign to raise funds to protect the museum’s priceless collection of trolleys which were severely damaged from Hurricane Irene.
The museum will be hosting its first ever "" on June 9 beginning at 10 a.m.
The museum’s goal is to raise funds to build new facilities on the high ground so that flooding will never cause this damage again.
“I hope the whole community comes out to support this important effort," the event coordinator Judy Sittnick said. "I know that this day of fun will be heightened by the knowledge that we are providing valuable support for what truly represents a jewel in our community.”
A Walk for Everyone
The Shore Line Trolley Museum invites member of the community, and their friends and family to walk the Museum grounds.
There will be four options of walks ranging from just a few steps to 4 miles, so there is a walk for everyone.
The trolley will be available to return walkers to the station if needed.
Each trail will provide walkers with the opportunity to view the beautiful scenery by the seashore as well as see the location of the "Island," the new home where permanent facilities will be built to ensure that our collection will be protected.
After the walk, participants can spend the day at the museum: there will be entertainment, concessions, and trolley rides.
Registration for the event is $15 for an individual and $25 for a family, with the assurance that all event proceeds will support the Museum’s Elevating The Collection campaign.
In addition to registering for the event, walkers will have the opportunity to do so much more by helping raise funds from their friends, family members and colleagues by asking them to sponsor the Walk.
There will be first, second and third place prizes for persons raising the most money.
