September 5—CBMM Charity Boat Auction

CBMM_BoatAuction_2011_03Date: Labor Day Weekend, Saturday, September 5, 2019.
Gates open at 8 am; auction begins at 11 am
Location: Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM)

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) is hosting its 19th annual Charity Boat Auction with proceeds benefiting the children and adults served by the museum. The live auction begins at 11 a.m. along the museum’s waterfront campus, where more than 100 boats—ranging in size and performance from sailing dinghies to cabin cruisers, and everything in between—will be auctioned off to the highest bidders. CBMM’s Boat Donations Program Manager takes donations and resells boats throughout the year, holding aside some of his inventory for the annual auction. Mills travels up and down the east coast working with boat owners and potential buyers wishing to support the museum through boat donations and sales.

“The revenue generated by the auction goes directly toward helping the museum’s educational programs and maintaining its antiquities. Let us take an unused or unwanted boat off your hands, and you can receive a nice tax deduction. Each donated boat helps the museum do great things for the people we serve.”

The event also includes a flea market-style tag sale from 9 a.m. til noon in which visitors are able to purchase a variety of used boating gear, including ground tackle, electrical equipment, hardware, rope or chain, ladders, fishing tackle, motors, and more.

Beginning at noon, beer and barbeque will be available for purchase. A majority of the auction boats can be viewed atwww.cbmm.org/boatauction, with inventory updated weekly. Boat sales are on-going throughout the year, with all auction boats subject to sale prior to the auction. Auction boats will be available for inspection at the museum, several days prior to the auction.

Advance bids will be accepted and can be called in at 410-745-2916 until noon on September 5. On September 5, the campus gates open at 8 a.m., with early admission at $5 per person until 1:30 p.m. After 1:30 p.m., admission returns to the regular daily rates of $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with a college ID, and $6 for children between the ages of 6 and 17. Children under 6 and museum members are admitted free.

To donate a boat or items for the tag sale, or for a fully updated listing of the boats up for auction, please contact Lad Mills at 410-745-4942.

To donate a boat or items for the tag sale, or to call in advance bids by 12 noon on Auction Day, contact 410-745-4961

Talbot Street in St. Michaels is once again sporting its annual finery – the colorful art banners of 2019! Now in its eighth year, this event is a favorite with residents and visitors alike, compliments of the members of the St. Michaels Art League.

Artist members offer their talents with paintings designed to “Celebrate St. Michaels”. Each year, the banners are produced through a collaboration of the St. Michaels Art League, Talbot County advocates, and local merchants.

Patrons will have an additional opportunity to purchase original banner paintings during the League’s Labor Day weekend art show on the grounds of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church on Talbot Street. The outdoor banners made from these paintings can be purchased directly from the artists in December when the banners are taken down from the street poles.

St. Michaels Art League membership is open to artists and art enthusiasts. Information on events, meetings, and membership can be found at www.smartleague.org. Sincere appreciation is extended to the Talbot Arts Council, St. Michaels Branch of the Talbot County Free Library, Choptank Electric Cooperative, and local merchants for their continued support of the banner program.

Mark your calendars for this wonderful show of art for by members of the League. For more information visit www.smartleage.org or contact Joan Cranor at 410-310-8382 or Janet Prieger at 410-745-2329.
