Sur­ratt House seeks vol­un­teers

Be a part of keep­ing his­tory alive and en­joy meet­ing and learn­ing from vis­i­tors who come from all points of the globe.

The Sur­ratt House Mu­seum in Clin­ton is send­ing out a plea for vol­un­teers, es­pe­cially to give tours of this his­toric house. Help is also needed in the vis­i­tors’ cen­ter. They ask for a com­mit­ment of only one, 4-hour shift each month.

Guides will be given ex­ten­sive train­ing on the his­tory of the times and the Sur­ratts. They will be asked to pro­vide their own pe­riod-cor­rect out­fit (fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance will be pro­vided). Those who work in the vis­i­tors’ cen­ter are asked to wear ap­pro­pri­ate “civil­ian at­tire” of the 21st cen­tury to greet vis­i­tors, sell tick­ets and gift shop items.

For in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the Sur­ratt So­ci­ety at 301868-1121.

Chang­ing land­scape

The Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land has a new 74-acre Re­gional Hugh­esville Cam­pus, an­tic­i­pated to open in the spring of next year.

Grand­son of for­mer Morn­ing­side Coun­cil­man dies

Wil­liam David “Billy” Gil­martin, 33, grand­son of Morn­ing­side Coun­cil­man Wil­liam J. “Bill” Gil­martin, Sr., who served on the Council from 1956 to 1964 died Sept. 10. Years ago Bill and Alice lived with their large fam­ily on Wood­land Road be­fore mov­ing to Auth Vil­lage.

Billy was born in Clin­ton to Wil­liam Gil­martin Jr. and L. Diane Win­free and grew up in Owings and Ch­e­sa­peake Beach. Af­ter North­ern High School, he be­came an elec­tri­cian with Local 26 IBEW. He was a mem­ber of the Stalling Wil­liams Post 206 Sons of the Amer­i­can Le­gion, and was an ar­dent sup­porter of the Redskins, Ori­oles and Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals.

He was pre­ceded in death by his brother Ryan. Sur­vivors in­clude his par­ents and sis­ters Erin, Shan­non and Me­gan. Ser­vices were at Rausch Fu­neral Home with burial at Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery.
