Balloon Museum Recruiting New Volunteers

The Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is offering a new volunteer orientation and training session on Monday, May 2, 10am-4pm, and invites those interested in serving as greeters, tour guides, and education assistants to attend the session.

"Our visitation has increased nearly 20 percent since last year," said Paul Garver, Balloon Museum Manager, "which means we have lots of new opportunities for people to help our guests have an engaging and educational experience."

According to Garver, people don't need prior experience with ballooning to serve as a volunteer. "We look for people who enjoy learning, and who also enjoy sharing their knowledge with our many guests -- the residents, students, and tourists of Albuquerque."

Anyone interested in learning more and signing up for the orientation and training session may contact Laurie Magovern, Balloon Museum Educator, by calling 768-6034 or emailing lmagovern@cabq.gov.
