Volunteer Open House on Monday at the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park

| January 17, 2019
Rams Head

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (AMM) is hosting  a Volunteer Open House in honor of the National Day of Service, to be held on January 21, 2019, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Museum’s Bay Room.

Do you love meeting new people?  Do you love the Chesapeake Bay? Help AMM preserve maritime history and create the next generation of Bay stewards by joining the volunteer team!

AMM currently enjoys a robust group of over 240 volunteers who worked a total of 6,000 hours in 2018. However, recent expansion, including a second campus at the Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park and the acquisition of the historic Skipjack, Wilma Lee, has made it necessary to grow its corps proportionally.

“Our hard-working volunteers continue to be the heart of the organization,” said Volunteer Coordinator Donna Adams. “Local residents interested in history, continuing education, or handy with a hammer will find great options for involvement with various levels of commitment. There is something for everyone!”
