“Bring your old memories and make some new ones.”

Spend the afternoon at Fager’s Island on October 20 from 1-3:30pm to celebrate the Ocean City Life-Saving Museum’s 40th Anniversary! This “Surfin’ the Seventies” themed event will offer a 50/50 Raffle, barbecue-style food, and music by DJ Batman for all of your friends and families.

Our team at Shorebread had the opportunity to speak with some of the Directors about the event, and they are all filled with excitement. Along with speaking about the Anniversary event, we were able to spend some time in each room of the museum. If you have never stepped foot inside, you are definitely missing out!

The Ocean City Life-Saving Station was commissioned in 1878. The building that is now the museum was originally built on today’s Caroline Street. In December of 1977, it was moved to the current location on the Boardwalk at the Inlet. The station responded to seven major shipwrecks before becoming the beautiful, historical museum filled with records, collections, and stories that it is today.

Board of Directors President Nancy Howard expressed the importance of celebrating this significant 40-year milestone. “We want you to bring your favorite memories to Fager’s Island for the celebration. We have been here for 40 years trying to tell people what’s so exciting about Ocean City, and also about the Life-Saving service that got it all started.”

This event will benefit the Ocean City Museum Society and will celebrate the past 40 years of the museum. The Museum Society is a nonprofit that is dedicated to inspiring and supporting the interpretation and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of Ocean City, and the Worcester County coastal region. Additionally, this society is responsible for funding many of the museum’s public programs and exhibits. Tickets can be purchased at www.ocmuseum.org, the Museum, or mail check to P. O Box 603 Ocean City Maryland 21843.
