What’s Happening Now at the Museum?
Chisman Creek Band This Past Sunday!!!
WOW WEE – did we have a grand time at our first summer concert! Over 155 guests danced, stomped, and partied their way into summer with the CHISMAN CREEK BAND! The band, hailing from the Williamsburg area, played a nice selection of foot stompin’ and dancin’ bluegrass, classic rock and modern rock vibes. The weather was decent, so we had the concert under the Pavilion (504 Main Street).
$10 pp, kids under 13 are free. Bring your own picnic dinner and a libation (or you can purchase beer, wine, soda and/or water here). Lawn chairs are welcome too! You pay at the gate/door – no reservations necessary! BRING FRIENDS!!!

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
