The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport
Relocation is a Community Event

The North Carolina Maritime Museum at SouthportMarch 16, 2010 Southport, North Carolina (NC) - Things have been happening at the corner of Moore and Davis Streets in downtown Southport, NC. Digging and planning have been going on to turn the barracks located at Ft. Johnston into the new home of the Museum. This project is a community wide effort in Southeastern NC as the final structure expects to welcome more than 100,000 guests per year.

Fund raising activities will be the next step taken. This step will precede the finalization of the structural plans as the monies needed to support the renovation must be raised immediately. Concept sketches for the new structure are being studied. They have a feel of being a part of the greater historic waterfront community.

The Friends of the NC Maritime Museum at Southport initial fund raising activity is a golf tournament to be held on April 28, 2010 at the Members Club in nearby St. James. The entire community is being asked to help the barracks renovation effort by supporting this tournament. Sponsor and Golf Registration Forms are available on-line at www.friendsncmmsouthport.org $85 for golf, cart, drink, and dinner.

There will be a live auction and raffle that will include maritime artifacts!

Pay-pal is also available on-line if you wish to make a donation.

Call Jim Carey at 910-253-6331 if you have any question.

Please help save the NC Maritime Museum at Southport!
