Brackish Life Donates to Talbot Hospice


Sharon and Kyle Poore of Brackish Life, a Chesapeake Bay apparel company,recently donated $500 to Talbot Hospice in memory of their dear friend Mike Morse who lost his battle with colon cancer last year. The funds were raised from the sale of Brackish Life oyster logo t-shirts designed by St. Michaels resident Sherry Smith, owner of Serendipity Salon, while she was undergoing treatment for colon cancer. Smith chose Talbot Hospice to receive $7 from the sale of each t-shirt.

L-R: Talbot Hospice Director of Development Kate Cox and Executive Director Vivian Dodge accept the contribution from Sherry Smith, Anne Morse, Sharon Poore, and Kyle Poore.

Brackish Life apparel pays tribute to the Chesapeake Bay with the slogan “A little salty.A little fresh.” In addition to a variety of men’s and women’s shirts, they also sell hats, decals, oyster knives, crab mallets, and tote bags with the Brackish Life logo and slogan.

“We are honored and grateful to be receiving a portion of the sales of Brackish Life’s oyster t-shirt,” said Talbot Hospice Executive Director Vivian Dodge. “Gifts like these have a huge impact on our ability to deliver compassionate care at the end of life. What a lovely tribute to Mike Morse and to all the individuals we serve.”

The oyster t-shirts are available for purchase at and will also be sold during Oyster Fest, October 27th, in front of Carpenter Street Salon.
