Grand Re-Opening/Open House at Tawes Museum, April 29, 2011If you follow this blog, you know that tonight - 5:00 p.m. -7:00 p.m., the Tawes Museum will be exhibiting the first-ever public showing of Gordon's Live/Dead boxes. Photos of many of the people who have called Gordon's home since 1924, will be on display. In addition, there will be an exhibit on Cristy's Seafood - a sixties blast-from-the-past photo-essay of life in a working water town.
But wait! There is more. The Tawes Museum will also be holding it's grand re-opening/open house with catering by Gordon's and live entertainment by the Mennolites, with Kenny Good, and chamber/board member Mary Beth Bradshaw-Pruitt, who recently entertained at Gordon's.
This is going to be a magically historical night, and I encourage all of my viewers, at least the ones who can make it here by 5:00 p.m. to come and join us. Tonight, you can not only experience history, you can be a part of history. A special thanks goes out to museum curator Tim Howard. His love for his work, and for Crisfield, shines in each and every project and program.
Below are a few photos of Mary Beth Bradshaw-Pruitt singing at Gordon's, as well as some random photos from the early a.m. event. I know of few establishments who have entertainment at 7:30 a.m. in the mornings. Crisfield is a truly unique place, full of some incredibly wonderful and talented people.
