Bugeye Ball

Funds raised by the 2018 Bugeye Ball

When we think of the Calvert Marine Museum, the image of the Drum Point Lighthouse flanked by the Wm. B. Tennison and Dee of St. Mary’s is often the first image that comes to mind. This year, funds raised from the Bugeye Ball will be designated to replace the bulkhead that these three museum icons depend upon. The 1975 bulkhead that supports the lighthouse is failing and is causing the soil beneath the lighthouse to slowly erode. A multi-year effort is now underway to raise the capital needed to replace the eastern side of the waterfront bulkhead. County and grant funding will match private funds so we can move quickly to protect these icons.
