Cleanup day slated for museum’s opening day
CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s Museum of Eastern Shore Life will open for the 2018 season on Saturday, April 7. The staff is working to arrange a new floor plan for the displays, primarily to accommodate a new display being assembled to recognize and honor those citizens from Queen Anne’s County who served in the U. S. military during World War II.
Many people have provided photos and artifacts for this exhibit but the staff is still seeking additional items for the display. If anyone has relatives from Queen Anne’s County who served in the military during WWII and has photos of them in uniform, it is requested that they allow the museum to make copies of those photos for the display. The original photos would be promptly returned to the owners.
Some additional items and photos from WWII will also be displayed.
The WWII display is scheduled to be completed by the end of April so as to be ready for viewing on visitors’ day on May 5 and for the rest of the year.
April 7 is also museum cleanup day. It is requested that anyone who may be able to assist in the cleaning in and around the museum come by the museum between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to help out.
The museum is located at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park (county fairgrounds) on state Route 18 at Dulin Clark Rd. between Centreville and Queenstown.
Visiting hours are from 1 to 4 p.m. and admission is free. Donations are always appreciated.
