Event Recap: 2017 Annual Meeting & Holiday Party

As 2017 comes to a close, the Annapolis Maritime Musem reflects upon a momentous year. Perhaps most indicative of our success is the new addition of “& Park” to our official name. Growth and renewal were the themes of the night when, on December 4, the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park celebrated 2017 and the release of the Annual Report. Members and volunteers came together to mingle and hear about the Museum’s growth over the past year.

Museum leadership gave a presentation outlining the highlights of 2017: the transformation of the Back Creek Nature Park Campus and the subsequent expansion of our education programs, a new exhibit in design, continued awards for venue, and – of course – the addition of our working cat, Pearl! Executive Director, Alice Estrada, also announced our Volunteers of the Year, Kate Spence and Michael Lindahl, and the winner of our Legacy Award, Marcia Buchanan.

Captain Santa’s Workshop

On December 2nd, AMMP was lucky enough to welcome to its shores the big man himself, Santa Claus! Our special maritime St. Nick was surrounded by a festive nautical backdrop, and his visitors were treated to hot cocoa, popcorn, and coffee. While they waited to share their lists of toys and treats, children made candles, jingle bells, and garland from recycled materials; creating gifts for themselves, their families and friends made the morning a special one!
