Preparations Made for August 9 Watermen’s Day


Members of the Talbot Watermen’s Association’s new leadership team recently met with Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum staff members to make plans for the 6th Annual Watermen’s Appreciation Day, which takes place along the museum’s 18-acre waterfront campus in St. Michaels, Md. on Sunday, August 9. In addition to steamed crabs, live music, and celebrity appearances, this year’s event brings a new location for the boat docking contest, which will move from CBMM’s Watermen’s Wharf docks to the area in front of the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, as shown here.
