The Calvert Recorder - - Community Forum -

The Calvert Marine Mu­seum an­nounced it will hold a free spe­cial needs night from 5 to 7 p.m. Fri­day, Nov. 9, for in­di­vid­u­als with spe­cial needs and their fam­i­lies or care­givers, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease

“This is the eighth year [the mu­seum] has offered a spe­cial needs night, open­ing the mu­seum to this au­di­ence,” Calvert Marine Mu­seum Di­rec­tor Sher­rod Stur­rock said in the press re­lease. “Over the years fam­i­lies have ex­pressed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for this safe time. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to see how your child re­sponds to the mu­seum and we hope it will be the first of many re- peat vis­its.”

The event, which is offered in co­op­er­a­tion with Calvert County Parks and Recre­ation Ther­a­peu­tic Recre­ation Ser­vices, al­lows in­di­vid­u­als to meet the mu­seum’s mas­cot ot­ter Bub­bles, and en­joy the skates and rays, fish, fos­sils,and ac­tiv­i­ties in the Dis­cov­ery Room, the re­lease states.

A model train will also be on dis­play from 1 p.m. through Satur­day, Nov. 10, cour­tesy of the Ch­e­sa­peake Beach Model Rail­road Club.
