Summer Meeting & Field Trip 2012: Tangier Island!

 

     

 Join us on the Summer Meeting & Field Trip to Tangier Island on Thursday, July 19, 2012! 

1. A fabulous cruise across the Chesapeake Bay on board the Chesapeake Breeze. Powered by 3 12V71 series Detroit diesels and just under 100 feet long, this aluminum ship transports passengers in safety and style. A top deck provides open-air viewing, an enclosed main cabin is also available. Snack bar makes coffee, sodas and snacks available underway.

2. Lunch at the Fisherman's Corner Restaurant. While there are several restaurants on Tangier Island, no other has had its crab cake recipe featured in Southern Living. Fisherman's Corner will be where we will have lunch upon our arrival on the island.

3. Program at the Tangier Museum after lunch. Debra Howard, Museum Director, will present Tangier in the 1600s, and give a talk on the early days of the island. We will have a brief meeting at the Museum before heading back to the Chesapeake Breeze for our return voyage.
