From Cynthia Beane, director of the Chesapeake Heritage Conservancy, Inc.:
As I am writing this – it is 30 degrees — not including the wind chill and the weatherperson is tracking yet another snow storm heading our way. However, I am doing my best to have warm thoughts of spring and sailing on the Bay aboard the Martha Lewis. First though, I need your help.
As I wrote in our last Happenings the Martha Lewis had transmission trouble on her second day of oystering. We have received word from the marina that she will need a new bell housing and her transmission will have to be rebuilt. The projected cost is $2,500.00. Also, during one of the heavy wind storms in mid-December, Martha’s push boat was damaged resulting in a large hole along her side. The cost of this repair is estimated at $3,900.00. This is where we need your help.
We are looking to fire up our supporters, so Martha can be fired up in the spring.
I am asking you to coinsider a donation to cover the cost of her repairs — it would be greatly appreciated. No donation is too small and your continued support is very important. Please send your donation payable to Chesapeake Heritage Conservancy, 121 N Union Avenue, Suite C, Havre de Grace, MD 21078 or clink here for debit or credit card donations through PayPal
Thank you for your support and helping to make the upcoming season a success.
