Volunteering at Thomas the Train
SAVE THE DATES FOR  VOLUNTEERING  A “Day out with Thomas” at the Colorado Railroad Museum.
 
The Railroad Museum is hosting the “Thomas the Tank Engine” for the 18th consecutive year and the Denver Lions have an opportunity to be Thomas Volunteers and help with this year’s program.  Last year Denver Lions volunteered 32 shifts and they all said they had a blast.  With the number of volunteers, the Museum did not charge us for the use of the pavilion.  We again need volunteers this year.
 
Thomas will be running for three weekends.  September  12-13,  19-20  26-27 save the dates
 
If you are able to volunteer for A Day Out With Thomas at the Colorado Railroad Museum, simply click this link to fill out the form https://coloradorailroadmuseum.org/volunteers/
OR
 
If you would like to volunteer, just send an email to the Event and Volunteer Director  danielle@crrm.org.
 
It is a good idea to tell her what day or days you can help. If you have not volunteered for this either of the last two years,
 Try it, you will have a lot of fun.   It is a fun time and you will be a part of making a lot of little kids very happy.  Thomas the Train is a big deal for the little kids.
 
THIS IS IMPORTANT:  IF WE GET ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS THEY WILL ALSO TRADE OFF THE USUAL CHARGE FOR THE USE OF THE PAVILION FOR THE VOLUNTEER HOURS.
