By now, you have probably heard about the re-opening of the historic Hayden Flour Mill in Tempe. It’s an awesome project and has created a great public space that will soon be used for concerts, gatherings etc. What was once considered an eyesore is now a spruced up entryway into the Mill Avenue District. Now, people can learn about the history of the mill and the surrounding area while touring the exterior of the site, as well.
This Saturday, people can volunteer to put some finishing touches on the project by joining in on this labor of love. See the press release from the city of Tempe below:
‘Rock out’ at Hayden Flour Mill on Saturday, June 30
You can volunteer to help finish the mill’s landscaping
Help your community and get your groove on at 6 a.m. Saturday, June 30, at the Hayden Flour Mill.
No, this isn’t about a benefit concert. The Rio Salado Foundation is looking for volunteers to tote rocks to fill landscaping baskets in the terraced area of the Hayden Flour Mill. The Hayden Flour Mill will open on Oct. 5 as an outdoor event center for the public. There is still a bit of work to be completed before that time.
We’ll bring some music, water and protein bars if you’ll bring your muscles. In exchange for your time, you will get a special, limited edition, thank you souvenir of the Hayden Flour Mill.
It shouldn’t take long – just an hour or two. Bring your own gloves and wear closed toe shoes.
To volunteer, please call Maryanna Bastian at 480 350-5190 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
