A day of work and play on a submarine

USS ALBACORE - "Forerunner of the Future" - AGSS 569 - Pioneering Research Vessel

The Friends Of Albacore's mission is to inform the public of and preserve the history of this experimental submarine. The Friends, in partnership with the Portsmouth Submarine Memorial Association, assist with the preservation of the submarine and the park grounds. Albacore Park invites you and your team to assist with spring cleanup. There are several volunteer tasks available but the primary goal is to clean up the park and submarine for the Memorial Day ceremony. Your group will pick up fallen branches, touch up paint in the visitor's center, clean and polish inside the submarine, clean windows, rake in the memorial garden, and help pick up around park entrance. Your assistance is welcomed, and submarine sandwiches (of course!), will be provided for lunch and there will be a guided tour of the USS Albacore.
Contact: James Craig, executive director, at 436-3680 or albacorepark@myfairpoint.net.
Location: Portsmouth.
