LIFE-SAVING STATION MUSEUM
4TH STORM WARRIORS 5K RUN/WALK
The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum Society will hold its Life-Saving Station Museum 4th Storm Warriors 5K run/walk on Sat., Nov. 11 on the Boardwalk starting at the Museum. Sign-in/registration is 8 a.m.; the race begins at 9. A 5K is 3.1 miles.
“We’ve been very happy with past events and look forward this one,” said Nancy Howard, event coordinator. “We are grateful for the folks who will come out to support the Museum. Get your day started with a brisk run or walk and then have the rest of the day to enjoy all that Ocean City and the area have to offer.”
The Museum has been a staple in Ocean City since 1978. The mission of the Society is to inspire and support the interpretation and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of Ocean City, Maryland, the Worcester County coastal region, and equally, the historical role performed by the United States Life-Saving Service, and to preserve with subsequent mandate the 1891 structure that once served as the Ocean City Station.
Permanent exhibits represent both the heroic deeds of the surfmen who staffed the station and the history of the area — including the storm of 1933 that cut the inlet, the Boardwalk of Yesterday, Davy Jones’ Locker, Sands of the World. A new exhibit depicts the life of Native Americans on the Eastern Shore. Currently the Museum has on display an exhibit oriented toward children with interactive activities. There is a small aquarium room that houses local sea creatures. Children particularly like this display. The Museum offers free, daily Boardwalk talks during the summer and has recently added Wildlife Wednesday to it’s offerings.
The Society is responsible for designing and producing the exhibits as well as collecting artifacts that help visitors experience the mission of our Society. The proceeds from the 5k will go a long way toward enhancing the Museum.
