Looking for fun this fall? With summer behind us, our calendar is already filled with fabulous fall occasions! In fact, there is not a weekend in October that is not popping with events!
One of our favorite fall events was held Saturday, October 15th. Thanks to the help of our staff and the community, our 11th Annual 10K on the Noland Trail and 5K at the Park at The Mariners’ Museum Park was a true success. All of our volunteers received a staff t-shirt and were ready to lend a hand as they helped along both routes to direct and cheer on runners, set-up event spaces, and assist with day-of registrations. Additionally, all of our runners received a medal and a bag full of goodies in celebration of their accomplishments! Between the gorgeous weather and one hundred more participants than last year, the event surpassed our expectations, and as we start the new work week, the office is in good spirits!
With that busy weekend behind us, we are welcomed back at the office with the phone ringing off the hook as clients express their interest in booking proms, formals, weddings, conferences, and much more for the upcoming year! Our latest project was reaching out to local high schools and colleges or universities with information for hosting their next prom or formal right here at the Museum, so we are excited to announce that we have already heard back from four local high schools requesting a reservation for next spring! So while you are busy in preparation for fall, the events department at The Mariners’ Museum is already taking on next year!
