The Boating Party Gala Fundraiser
Be a part of the Museum’s fall gala fundraiser which includes cocktails, dinner, and dancing on Navy Point.

** In deference to Yom Kippur, we have moved the original Boating Party Date of September 14 to September 7.**
Lapstrake Skiff Workshop, presented by the Model Guild
Led step-by-step by skilled modelers, participants will create a 10-inch wooden rowing skiff with lapped side planking and a flat bottom. Class size is limited, with pre-registration needed. The 10-inch model is formed over a frame in much the same manner as a real boat is constructed. Thin toothpicks are used along with fast-drying glue to fasten the models together. Models are made of one dark and one light wood, which are alternated in the design to make a handsome, two-toned appearance. CBMM’s Model Guild welcomes anyone 12 years of age or older to take these classes, and encourages new members of all skill levels to participate in the Guild, use its facilities, and trade model building experience with museum visitors. A special rate for a parent-child team can accommodate younger children.
