Our Holiday Party and Annual Meeting took place on Dec. 8th at 12:30 pm at the New London Custom House. We enjoyed fine food, good sea stories and an interesting program from our Speaker: Dawn Miller, Manager of the Seaport’s Boat Livery and John Gardner Boat Shop.
This coming year is the 50th of the John Gardner Small Craft Workshop as well as the 20th of our Chapter, Dawn had some interesting plans on how we may best celebrate.
Established in 1793, Lowell’s Boat Shop is the oldest operating boat shop in America.

This will allow us to attend right after our meeting; it is just down the road at the German Club, across the street from the Seaport’s South Entrance. Admission is free with a donation of $15 suggested. It is sponsored by the Pinewoods Folk Music Club as a fundraiser for the 40th Annual Sea Music Festival held at the Seaport, as well as other nearby venues, June 6th thru 9th. If you have never been, this Chantey Sing is a Blast, so to speak; audience participants stand up and belt out a stanza, the audience then chimes in on the chorus, the singer then sits down and another pops up. Informal good fun!
