The theme of this year’s MuseumDay is Women Making History, honoring women in society who are trailblazers in the ats, sciences, innovation and culture, and embolding others to be pioneers as well. We honor women like Ms. Haynie, Ms. Rogers, Ms. Butler, Ms. Biddlecomb, Ms. Reed, Ms. Walker, and MANY others who called Reedville home.
Bring your friends and family over. On the same day we’re hosting our first time as a focal point for a Clean the Bay Day. Our Clean the Creek event will help get the junk out of our beloved creek and access to the Bay.

ATTENTION VOLUNTEERS! Interested in History?
Volunteer Docents Are in Great Demand!
The Reedville Fishermen’s Museum needs some help from our local area residents and friends. We are in need of new docents to man the gift shop and guide our visitors through the museum and its campus. Shifts are only 3 1/2 hours long. There are two docents per shift and two shifts per day. If you can spare time to volunteer for one or two shifts per month, it would make a huge difference! You can even pick which days of the week you would like to help. Complete training is provided and it is not difficult to learn.
Please contact the Museum office at 804.453.6529 if you would like to join our wonderful volunteer force!
Thank you so much
