Aww… Shucks Oyster Social

 

Gather some friends and join us for the Aww… Shucks Oyster Social, the museum’s annual fundraiser for the Dee of St. Mary’s, on Saturday, September 16. Indulge in the fattest and saltiest oysters on the half shell from 4 – 7 p.m. under the lighthouse. Enjoy heavy hors d’ oeuvres, beer and wine, and live music. Tickets are $75 each and available online at www.bit.ly//SupportTheDee. Proceeds from this year’s event will support a new endowment for the Dee of St. Mary’s.

Since acquiring the Dee in 2013, utilization of the skipjack has increased with educational programs, private charters, and public sails that have enabled many people to experience this floating classroom. The volunteer crew has invested hundreds of hours maintaining this vessel and the new endowment will assist with the many challenges they face throughout the year as they care for this iconic wooden workboat.

The oyster social will include live music by Jeff Farias and Gary Rue. Beer and wine, compliments of Bozick Distributors, along with heavy hors d’ oeuvres by local restaurants promise an evening of relaxed fun, all in support of the Dee.

Sponsorship opportunities are available at all levels and include complimentary tickets to the event, along with other unique benefits. Please contact Pam Paterson at 410-326-2042 ext. 13 or email Pamela.Paterson@calvertcountymd.gov for more information. We hope you will join us in caring for this beautiful piece of Chesapeake Bay history.
