We were hopeful back in November and December that we were going to be able to have a Dine Out for dew\Witt program this year. But, now with the limited supply of vaccine and the slow rollout, it does not appear that indoor dining is going to be an option for us prior to May. So, we are going to cancel our Spring Celebration at the Lucky Oyster. Hopefully we can get in a couple of dine outs as restrictions for the coronavirus are lifted .
If you read the main article in our newsletter you are aware that we are going to be constructing an outdoor gazebo on the deWitt cottage grounds. It is a historically significant structure in that the deWitt family had a similar structure on the property during the 1920s. On February 24th we were granted a letter of appropriateness from the Virginia Beach Historic Review Board allowing us to proceed in obtaining our building permit. We are now in the process of securing bids to allow us to begin construction of the gazebo. We are hopeful that we will be able to break ground on this structure soon.
Now that there is a significant retreat in the number of Coronavirus cases in our state and our city The Atlantic Wildfowl Heritage Museum will reopen on Thursday April 1, 2021. The Spring operating hours will be Wednesday through Sunday 10 AM to 5:00 PM. On Memorial Day the museum will begin being open seven days a week 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM until Labor Day.
