From the Museum Director

Museum Director, Lynn HightowerI want to thank everyone who attended “Dine out for The de Witt” Tuesday night February 11th  at Surfrider Seafood Restaurant, 1375 Oceana Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA. We only had approximately 30 people in for dinner that would not have normally been there on a Tuesday night.  We have now had poor showings for our first two “Dine Outs” of 2019. Attendance is down by about 50%.  Great job for those of you that have participated so far!  We have two more really great restaurants to “Dine Out” in this year.  On April 7, 2020, we will “Dine Out” at The Pub Restaurant at 1001 Laskin Road, Virginia Beach, VA. 23451 from 5:30pm until 8:30pm.  We will then close out our “Dine Out” events with our Annual Lucky Oyster Celebration Dinner on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. *we will keep you updated on cancelations going forward*

This is a really great way for our museum to raise $1000 to $2000 dollars between Christmas and Memorial Day!  It takes virtually no effort on your part; other than to get up off the couch and go to dinner!  You are going to eat dinner anyway and your spouse would love to get out of the kitchen! Ask your friends who have been to the last two restaurants; it’s been fun! We try to pick locations that are unique and memorable.  You enjoy a delicious dinner with good friends and provide a means of much needed support for your museum. It is also a great way to introduce some new people to the museum and discuss membership over dinner. If you haven’t participated yet, what’s holding you back?

Lastly I just want to say Thank God for Martha Davenport, our new Volunteer Event Coordinator; you will understand more clearly when you read her message that follows: “From the Events Desk”.
