The Kent Island Bay Times - - Arts & Entertainment -

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.

Bal­let The­atre of Mary­land presents “Beauty and the Beast” on Sun­day at the Bowie Cen­ter.
