The American Music Landmarks Project is excited to be an official participant in the third annual National Historic Marker Day on Friday, April 28th! We are eager to support this wonderful initiative of the William G. Pomeroy Foundation by helping music fans get connected with an opportunity to assist an historic marker of musical significance in their community or region. This coincides with our public service mission to cultivate awareness, appreciation and active stewardship of the places that shaped our collective music history.
Visit the foundation’s official National Historic Marker Day webpage to learn more, register and download your volunteer kit. Participation is free for both individuals and groups alike and those who register will receive stickers, cleaning supplies and be considered for service awards. The volunteer kit includes suggestions for kid-friendly activities to engage a new generation.
