MEET: Kathy Bosin, Friends Board
When Friends Board member Kathy Bosin and her husband moved to the Eastern Shore in 2008, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum was the first place they explored. Drawn initially to CBMM’s floating fleet of historic Chesapeake boats, they soon came to realize the importance of the institution as a steward of the Chesapeake Bay’s cultural heritage.
When Kathy was asked to join the Friends Board last year, she was delighted and honored. Kathy believes it is the shared responsibility of the local community to support the work of institutions like CBMM.
Kathy brings to the Friends Board her connections to the community and her ability to recognize opportunities for partnership. She has also contributed her writing and photography to the winter 2016 edition of The Chesapeake Log, with a featured article on the Museum’s Crab Cakes educational program.
One of Kathy’s favorite memories of CBMM is going out on the 1888 classic yacht Elf to capture photos for her A Chesapeake Journal blog entry on the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood, now under historic restoration at CBMM through 2018. And her favorite aspect of the Chesapeake Bay is its fragility and resilience as an estuary impacted daily by the actions of seventeen million people.
We would like to thank Kathy for her time and dedication to the Museum!
