Wow! Watermen’s Museum is a finalist in EIGHT categories for the 2019 Coastal Virginia (CoVa) Best of Readers’ Choice Awards! As you may know, we only have 2 full-time employees and a small group of Gift Shop folks on paid staff. Everything else we do is accomplished by our wonderful members and volunteers. They build the exhibits, teach the classes, man the events, perform as musicians and reenactors, maintain the buildings and grounds, and so much more.
Their tremendous work has resulted in the Watermen’s Museum be nominated in all of the following categories:
- Arts And Entertainment – Best Music Act – ShantyGrass (our in-house band)
- Arts And Entertainment – Best Museum – Watermen’s Museum
- Arts And Entertainment – Best Music Venue – Watermen’s Museum
- Arts And Entertainment – Best Place to Hear Local Bands – Watermen’s Museum
- Education – Best Summer Camp – Watermen’s Museum
- Travel and Leisure – Family Friendly Attraction/Activity – Watermen’s Museum
- Travel and Leisure – Favorite Place to Take Out-Of-Towners – Watermen’s Museum
- Travel and Leisure – Local Attraction – Local Festival/Event – Watermen’s Museum Oyster Festival
I know we said vote for us…and we hope you will. But, we also have a lot of local Village of Yorktown friends and businesses we hope you vote for, too. Examples of categories where these friends and neighbors can be found are: Art Gallery, Farmers Market, Banquets/Events Hall, Place to Hear Local Bands, Festival/Event, local Bed and Breakfast, Place to Picnic, Place to take Out-of-Towners & Weekend Getaway. Not to mention all the fabulous Historic Yorktown businesses, restaurants, and museums.
As we said above, voting runs through March 29th. So vote for your favorites every day! Voting every day is the only way to keep them in the competition.
