History on Tap with Devil’s Purse Brewing and the 3-5-0 Girls
THREE PART SERIES:
Come to one or all! July 7, 14, 28, 5:00pm -7:00pm
Join us for the first of this 3 part living history series this summer at the museum, with the 3-5-0 Girls (WWII Women’s Military Demonstration), on July 7th.
This series is designed for adults and families to interact with history, enjoy some nibbles, and enjoy beer tastings from local breweries on the museum’s waterfront back patio.
Living Historians will be presenting live talks, videos, and demonstrations and will be free to answer any questions about their artifacts, history, or cultural heritage. Visitors will be encouraged to be curious, ask questions, and learn all about these periods of history while sampling drinks from Devil’s Purse Brewing.
The 3-5-0 Girls will be talking about the Women’s Naval Reserve (WAVES) and the Coast Guard Reserves (SPARS). There were 100 WAVES stationed in Chatham, operating an RCA station and 12 SPARS were operating Unit 21, the first LORAN station to be run entirely by women. The WAVES were helping with spotting u-boats and the SPARS were essential in navigation for American ships and aircraft.
Please contact the venue directly with any questions.
