Donors of the Day

Donors of the Day Beverly & Richard Tilghman Sponsor Day at CBMM October 24, 2017










Boatbuilding, Group tours, Tall Ships, oh my! Every day is jam-packed at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and Tuesday, October 24, 2017 is no exception. Thank you to Beverly and Richard Tilghman for generously sponsoring this day at CBMM.

On this day, we will welcome Worcester Prep School sixth graders to participate in our Bay Bounty Tour and then experience visiting tall ship Lady Maryland. The River Landing Senior Group will receive a guided tour of campus. And, two Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) courses will educate interested participants in Boat Buying and Delmarva Steam History.

In our working Boatyard, shipwrights and apprentices fair the inside of Edna E. Lockwood’s new hull to fit inside the existing frames, while sixth to tenth grade students work on a Smith Island Skiff in our Rising Tide After-School Boatbuilding Program. All in a day’s work!

We are very grateful to Beverly and Richard Tilghman for sponsoring a day at CBMM. With a cost of $10,000 per day to operate your Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, we couldn’t do it without the generosity of our friends. If you are interested in sponsoring a day, please contact Carly Faison at 410-745-4950 or for more information.
