ST. MICHAELS — The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum recently hosted its annual Board of Governors’ fiscal review meeting, which included a reception along the museum’s waterfront campus in St. Michaels.

The June 24 meeting included presentations from CBMM President Kristen Greenaway, Vice President of Finance Branden Meredith and members of the both the BOG and Friends Board.

Updates were given on the museum’s planned exhibition building, its finances for the prior fiscal year and the upcoming Boating Party Fundraising Gala.

“I am very, very grateful for the board’s unwavering commitment and support of our mission, vision and ongoing efforts to help drive those,” Greenaway said.

“We’ve made excellent strides over the past year — increasing numbers of K-12 school children interacting with expanded programming, our Rising Tide After-School boatbuilding program now in its fifth year and serving over 150 youth, and being awarded the $5 million contract to build a new Maryland Dove, for example — and we’re excited to press forward with our library expansion and new exhibition building, the first two components in our master plan,” Greenaway said.

Attending the reception were members of the Board of Governors, Board Emeritus and alumni, Friends Board and staff, with a post-meeting reception held waterside on Fogg’s Landing, catered by Garden & Garnish of Trappe.

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment and culture of the entire Chesapeake Bay region, and making this resource available to all.

Every aspect of fulfilling this mission is driven by CBMM’s values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship, along with a commitment to providing engaging guest experiences and transformative educational programming, all while serving as a vital community partner.
