After 27 years of service in a variety of positions, Clyde and Lois Ambacher retired, leaving vacant their positions on the Maintenance Response Team. Cumulatively, the couple had logged 15,436 hours since they started volunteering in 1985. Those are some mighty big shoes to step into, but they need filling. Mount Rainier National Park is looking to "recruit new Ambachers" (per the amusing note on my desk this morning) to the position.
As part of the Maintenance Response Team, volunteers will provide support for the Maintenance Division at Longmire. Duties will include general maintenance such as litter pickup, weeding and watering, and "handyman" repair work. The assignment may also include service as backup to staff members in the Wilderness Information Center and at the Museum. If you are interested in applying, please fill out an application at Volunteer.gov (key words "Maintenance Response Team").
