With just over two and a half weeks until RAGBRAI riders will dip their tires into the Mississippi, Muscatine is gearing up for the big event!
Residents of Muscatine have several ways they can get involved. One of the biggest current needs is town greeters! Being a town greeter is easy. It involves being present on the day of the event and answering simple questions about Muscatine – and who knows Muscatine better than its residents? You might even be asked to take some quick phone pictures for riders as they pose at the dip site.
A volunteer meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 12 at 6 p.m. at the Riverview Center, 110 Harbor Drive, for those wishing to learn more about getting involved as a town greeter! If you can’t make it to the meeting, you can sign up to volunteer at VolunteerMuscatine.org.
