    The ship`s caulking demo at the Discovery Center was a success! It is amazing how the young children enjoy trying their hand at it. CHA will cntinue to pass on the tradtional skills at the “revival tent” this coming weekend (Dec 14 &15) at Scotts Cove Marina in Chance, MD where the skipjack Kathryn is being restored.

    Honor the past and educate for the future.
