Mu­seum of East­ern Shore Life be­gins mem­ber­ship drive

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Queen Anne’s Mu­seum of East­ern Shore Life is be­gin­ning its 2017 mem­ber­ship drive and is seek­ing ad­di­tional mem­bers for its board of di­rec­tors. If any­one feels qual­i­fied and is in­ter­ested, they are asked to con­tact the mu­seum.

An­nual mem­ber­ship fees range from $15 for an in­di­vid­ual or $25 for a fam­ily. A do­na­tion of $300 will earn a life­time mem­ber­ship for an in­di­vid­ual and spouse, and other amounts in be­tween for dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories.

The mu­seum board mem­bers have been busy work­ing on chang­ing over some of the dis­plays. The new ex­hibit for the late John W. Selby has been com­pleted. Sev­eral other dis­play cases are in the process of be­ing as­sem­bled, in­clud­ing one fea­tur­ing the his­tory of Queen Anne’s County.

An ex­hibit of antique chil­dren’s toys was re­cently com­pleted.

An­other ex­hibit in the plan­ning stage is one rec­og­niz­ing those ci­ti­zens of Queen Anne’s County who served in World War II. It is re­quested that peo­ple with photos of fam­ily mem­bers in uni­form al­low the mu­seum to make copies of those photos for dis­play in the mu­seum. The orig­i­nal photos would be promptly re­turned to the fam­ily.

The mu­seum has an on­go­ing re­quest for archival photos. If any­one has photos of peo­ple, places or ac­tiv­i­ties in Queen Anne’s County from the 1800’s through the 1960’s, it is re­quested that the mu­seum be al­lowed to make copies of such photos. The orig­i­nals would be promptly re­turned to the own­ers.

The mu­seum will be open to vis­i­tors from 1 to 4 p.m. on Satur­day, June 3. Ad­mis­sion is free, but donations are ap­pre­ci­ated.

The mu­seum is lo­cated at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park (county fair­grounds) on Md. Route 18 at Dulin Clark Road be­tween Cen­tre­ville and Queen­stown.
