WOW! WOW! WOW!

Thanks so much to all who came out for the Watermen’s Story Swap held this past Friday, February 24 at the Grasonville VFW post, and thanks to all who made our very successful event possible.

I gotta tell ya, it was pretty amazing.

We had a huge turnout, heard great stories from the watermen, offered an array of amazing displays that provided insight into an important part of our history and cultural heritage, and there was a real palpable sense of community. One person told me it felt like a great family reunion,and another mentioned how uniquely  intimate the room felt, even with 200+ people in attendance.

My kindergarten teacher said, “It reminded me of the days when the men gathered around a stove in the little community stores and swapped stories.”

Mission accomplished.
