Lindsborg Old Mill & Swedish Heritage Museum

LINDSBORG - Lindsborg Old Mill & Swedish Heritage Museum is inviting the community to pick out some work clothes, roll up their sleeves, and come out on Oct. 1 to spruce up the museum’s buildings and grounds.

Caroline de Filippis, community development director, said this is a perfect opportunity to show support.

“We’re celebrating our 60th anniversary as a museum this year,” de Filippis said. “It’s a wonderful milestone, but it also reminds us of how important regular maintenance is to keep this place beautiful.”

The work day will run 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., but volunteers can come and go as their availability will allow. Meet at the main museum at 120 E. Mill Street in Lindsborg to volunteer.

Necessary work planned for the day will include organization and cleaning, landscaping, and fence repair, so please wear comfortable clothes that can get dirty or torn as part of the day’s work.

The museum will be providing refreshments to volunteers, as well as lunch for full-day workers. In order to plan accordingly, the museum is asking volunteers to please register with a quick survey at
