Dear Friend:

The Lifesaving Museum needs you. And, if you think about what we bring to the region and each of our individual clients, you may find that you need the museum, too.

What excites you about the museum? Our youth and adult open-water rowing programs? The traditional boatbuilding skills workshops? Preservation of rare, historic artifacts? Arts and science programs for elementary school children? Breeches Buoy reenactments? Job skills training for high-risk teens? Artist workshops and juried exhibitions? Curriculum-based, experiential education programs for middle schoolers? Fabulous parties?

We are a multi-faceted organization, motivated by our achievements and our potential to bring focused energy to the fulfillment of our mission. As we continue implementing our five-year Strategic Plan, highlights of the coming year will include:

Maritime Artisans Program Series: Building on the success of last year’s eight-part Maritime Artisans Lecture Series, the new initiative will include lectures, shop and outdoor-based workshops, and historical research opportunities regarding indigenous Massachusetts Bay watercraft, the people who built them, and the living traditions of wooden boats that still thrive in our region.

Sea and Sky Juried Art Show: The involvement of many of the region’s finest artists has made the museum one of the South Shore’s finest, and freshest, exhibition venues.

Maritime Apprentice Program: The expansion of our pioneering job training programs for DYS-committed youth into a full-time, year-round program i nvolves high-level partnerships with over a dozen businesses, trade unions, training programs, and colleges assisting with career development in the maritime trades.

After-School Open Water Rowing: We are thrilled by the resurgence in participation of young Hullonians in the museum’s 25-year old rowing program (Home Waters), and their carrying forth of a legendary local tradition. They join 350 other young people from the South Shore and Boston already engaged in this magnificent after-school activity.

Seadogs: Tails of the Sea!: Opening in November 2 005, the museum will host Mystic Seaport Museum’s fabulous exhi bit, with a year of accompanying pet-centric ev ents.

We have a passion for excellence, and need your help to sustain the quality and breadth of our renowned commun ity-based programs, whic h have made us one of the most highly respected and frequently emulated museums in the fi eld.
