Avast! Grab Ye Matie to Pillage Historic London Town at June 7 Benefit
A message from the captain:
We been hearin’ word about swag and swill festivities, over there at olde London Town. Just today we got this message via glass bottle from the head of the Mermaid Society:
Here ye Landlubbers and Old Salts! The 2012 Historic London Town and Gardens 2012 Benefit is on the horizon. It is going to be a beauty. Of course they will be offering grub and rum, but also auctions.
After you’ve raided the auction for the top-notch booty, check out the Mermaid art centerpieces from local artists including Lee Boynton and Martha Boynton of Annapolis, Nendy Lawson of Edtewater, Kendy Lawson of Annapolis, Stephanie Nodalski of Shady Side, Elsie Whitman of Galesville and others.
The olde scurvy scout John Whitman will be the featured auctioneer.
According to the mateys running this Historic London Town and Gardens benefit, the theme will be nautical, with pirates, privateers, mermaids and seafarers scurrying about. The evening will include grub (fine food) from select area caterers, swill bars (wine and beer), music, and re-enactors in period clothing.
Of course there will be rum—no good pirate gathering would be complete without it. But there will also be raffles and plenty of good items for bid at the silent and live auction.
This is the fifth benefit of Ye Olde Historic London Town and Gardens’ Mermaid Society.
The event will cost $100 before June 1. It take place from 6 to 9 p.m. June 7 at Historic London Town and Gardens, 839 Londontown Road.
The mermaids and mermen putting this event on hope that you will continue to support London Town’s mission of preserving colonial history through education programs, archaeology, horticulture, and William Brown House tours.
Pirates will hold you up for $110 after June 1 or at the door. (It is best to hand over your pieces of eight early).
