On Friday, April 20th, at Grasonville VFW Post 7464, the Queen Anne’s County Watermen’s Association will present a Watermen’s Story Swap.

The program will feature a panel of local watermen telling stories from both the past and present, but will also include a number of exhibits relevant to the local seafood industry, such as vintage photographs and artifacts watermen have found while harvesting the waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

Easternshorebrent will be moderating the panel.

The event is free (though contributions will be accepted) and open to the public.

Several watermen who have not participated in past Story Swaps will be part of this year’s panel. Three of these new storytellers will be Captains Warren Butler, Eddie Grimes, and Joey Sadler.
