FROM THE MUSEUM DIRECTOR

Museum Director, Lynn Hightower

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 will be the date for our annual Christmas Party.  We will gather in the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #8, 961 S. Birdneck Road at 6:00pm for dinner and the menu is potluck.  So all you ladies need to bring out your best recipes. The museum will provide the meat (Ham and Turkey) along with Coffee and Tea.  Setups will be available at the FOP bar (BYOB).  We will have live music and perhaps some surprise entertainment.  Members and their guests are welcome free of charge.  If you are not a member and you would like to attend please contact the director.  Please make you plans now to attend and reserve your place by calling the director at (757) 437-8432 or email him at director@atwildfowl.org. Everyone must RSVP.

I would like to issue a special thank you to our garden club president Jacky Richards for her dedication to the garden throughout the Spring and Summer.  Jacky has been an almost daily presence in the garden for the past three years. She has also managed to negotiate a wonderful plan with the City of Virginia Beach Land Scape Services for our garden in the very near future.  The City will provide more plants of color and provide mulch for our beds.  They will also help relocate some of the current plants.  We are very excited about the continued improvements to our beautiful seaside gardens. Please contact the Director at Email director@atwildfowl.org  or call (757) 437-8432 if you are interested in joining the deWitt Cottage Garden Club. You could help them have another award winning garden this year!
Dine out for the deWitt starts on Monday January 13, 2018 at IL’Giardino’s Restorante 910 Atlantic Avenue (one block south of the deWitt Cottage).  This is the program where you take your spouse out to dinner and the restaurant donates a percentage of what your meal cost to the museum.  Easy peasy; you go out to dinner with your friends, family, or potential new guild member and the museum receives a nice donation.  So let’s see how many people we can pack into IL’Giardino’s Restorante.
