Women’s Shipbuilding Day

November 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Maine’s First Ship for our annual Women’s Shipbuilding Day on Sunday, November 3, 9am to 3pm.  No knowledge or experience is required.  MFS Shipwright Rob Stevens will start the day with an overview of Virginia before participants begin hands-on activities.  The original Virginia was built at the mouth of the Kennebec River by English colonists in 1607; MFS volunteers are reconstructing a new Virginia on the waterfront, behind the Bath Freight Shed at 27 Commercial Street.

For more information contact the Maine’s First Ship office at 443-4242 or, or MFS President Orman Hines at 389-2419.

Free of charge; tools supplied; bring your own lunch or plan to pop out & pick up locally.  Please register with the MFS office by October 29, if possible.
