All Hands on Deck! - Painting Party
We are very excited to announce that we will have a bench painting party on:
Saturday, September 18, 2021
9:00am - 12:00 noon
Meet at the Titanic Memorial
We will paint as many benches as we can while maintaining social distance. To find more details and to sign up, visit our Events Page.
Due to COVID restrictions, each participant must register individually for this event. We will have protocols in place, including masking and social distancing, for everyone's safety. Details are available on the Events Page.
Mask requirements in National Parks - Update
The National Park Service has recently changed mask requirements within National Parks. You must wear a mask inside all NPS buildings, and in crowded outdoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status or community transmission levels.
Usually maintain physical distance is not a problem in Titanic Memorial Park. Do have a mask handy just in case you find it difficult to maintain distance from others enjoying the park. You can find more information in their August 16, 2021 News Release.
We wish fair winds and following seas to Kramer Phalen, who has served on the Board as our Treasurer for the last two years. We will miss Kramer on the Board, and hope to see him at future Friends events!
Two new ways to support the Friends
We will be kicking off our annual donation drive in October. Stay tuned for more information in our next e-blast. There are two other ways you can support the Friends:
Amazon Smile gives the Friends .5% of every eligible purchase. To add the Friends as your Amazon Smile recipient, go to our direct link at: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/84-2138411
A couple of friends recently set up Facebook fundraisers, and we are grateful for their support! We can assure you that if you set up a Facebook fundraiser, all of the donated funds will come to the Friends - there are no surcharges or hidden fees. Simply choose the "Raise Money" option and enter "Friends of Titanic Memorial Park" in the search for your nonprofit.
Thanks for your continued support!
