MEDORA, N.D. — About 650 people are volunteering at Medora this summer, ushering at the musical, staffing the mini golf course and getting tables ready for pitchfork fondue. The volunteers, mostly retirees, spend a little over a week in Medora working at 16 venues. Volunteers pay their own way to Medora, but the Medora Foundation provides housing at the Spirit of Work Lodge and meals. The volunteers also get to see the Medora Musical, the shows at the theater and visit other Medora attractions for free. By Amy Dalrymple, Bismarck Tribune. SENT IN ADVANCE: 535 words.
