A Salty Upbringing: Tales of Maritime Mothers at the Penobscot Marine Museum
May 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Sunday, May 12 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
PMM’s Sea Captain’s Home
Cost: free, donations welcome
Save the date for a special Mother’s Day weekend event at the Museum on May 12 from 4pm-6pm. The Searsport District Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society will tell tales of mothers depicted in our collections, through portraits and mementoes. A Midcoast Maine mother reared her children at sea or at least close to the water’s edge. In later years, she sent her sons off to be captains and crew and her daughters to be captain’s wives. Hear our troop of young actors tell the tales of the mothers as you tour our Sea Captain’s home.
