Thank you for an amazing 2020 summer considering all the craziness in the world right now! We enjoyed all those who came out for the Maritime Mondays, Crafts, and events and we look forward to welcoming you back this summer. Maritime Mondays from 10-12 are beginning July 5 and continue every week until the end of August. With rotating themes the kids will love the crafts and activities every week. We are also planning our Pirate Day for July 24 and will be hosting the Bull Head Derby with the Lions Club August 28. We hope to see you there!
Our Pirate Day event In July is a fun family event where we will have games, crafts, food, music, and prizes as well as introducing our maritime history. Families are invited to drop in to experience the buccaneer fun we have in store! Come on down a keep your eyes peeled for a pirate running around!
