Organizers want help to display the historic Corky Freedom Banner within view of SeaWorld San Diego, where she is the longest-captive orca, to Launch the Corky 2 Freedom Journey, a renewal of the Corky Freedom bus tour up the West Coast with Corky’s Freedom banner in 1999.
Christine Caruso, a kindergarten teacher from Seattle, has secured the huge banner handcrafted of panels contributed worldwide for the original Corky’s Journey for display along this 2014 Corky 2 Freedom Journey.
The banner will be displayed on the large grassy area between Ingraham Street and Ski Beach Boat Launch, just north of the Entrance to SeaWorld on Vacation Isle, NOT South Shores Boat Launch as originally planned, from 8am to 6pm.
They will lay the roughly 5′ wide strips of handmade cloth panels stitched together side by side with a walking path in between for viewing.
1) With 24 plastic bins holding these strips, they NEED VOLUNTEERS to help lay them out starting at 8a, and another crew to help fold them carefully and return them to the bins starting at 4p.
2) They will also need Volunteers throughout the day to keep an eye on this historic folk art resource, keep it tidy, and answer questions from visitors. GREAT outreach opportunity!
