Museum Director’s Message 1/20/20

Museum Director, Lynn HightowerHappy New Year! Another year of success and happiness has passed. With every New Year comes greater challenges and obstacles in life. I wish you courage, hope and faith to overcome all of the hurdles you may face. May you have a great year and a wonderful time ahead!  I am eager to spend time in the New Year with you. Last year we got older and slower but we had a good time. Let’s make sure we do the same in this New Year!

I want to thank everyone who answered my request for assistance by providing many wonderful items for our Fall Barbeque and Christmas silent auctions. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

I want to thank everyone for the delicious potluck dishes we all shared at the Christmas Party.  I believe everyone had a joyous and enjoyable time

Our first Photos with Santa and the Red Truck was held on December 7, 2019.  We had 17 families participate, comprised of Museum members, friends, referrals, and Virginia Beach visitors.  We would like to thank Jim Briggs and his Red Truck, Ron and Shawn Form of H2O Waterfront Venues for their photography services, Michael Mauch of Harvest Restaurant for the complimentary hot chocolate and cookies , and Al and Judy Wilder for providing Santa Claus.

In addition, we would like to thank the support of the Board members of this event. Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 5, 2020 for our next Photos with Santa and the Red Truck.  2020 will bring a bigger holiday celebration for the Museum.

I hope to see every one of you at the Dine out for the deWitt on January 13, 2020 at IL’Giardino’s Restorante 910 Atlantic Avenue (one block south of the deWitt Cottage).  5:30 – 8:00pm.

​Please make you plans now to attend and Please bring some guests with you!  I will see you there!
