SOLOMONS, MD – October 18, 2019 – The Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) is opening its doors on Friday evening, November 1, for Special Needs Night. The museum will be open exclusively for all individuals with special needs and their families or caregivers from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  See why the museum is a fun and welcoming place for families to visit any day of the week!  This event is offered in cooperation with Calvert County Parks & Recreation Therapeutic Recreation Services.

“On Special Needs Night, we open up the colorful world of the museum for guests to enjoy at their own pace.  In addition to everything that the museum has to offer, this year we will feature free boat rides on the Tennison (weather permitting) and a model railroad layout – the first time we’ve ever featured both on the same night!  It’s all free of charge, and I encourage parents and kids to come out for a really fun family experience in a safe and welcoming environment,” said Jeffrey Murray, Director.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
