Tea Party at the Maritime - a glimpse at wartime child development center

We had such a great time with our guests at the tea party!

Special thanks to Kathryn Daskal, Supervisory Park Ranger, for showing us the Maritime Child Development Center Classroom Exhibit. This exhibit has been closed to the public for quite some time and we felt very honored to be able to view and learn more about our very own building!

Words cannot express our gratitude for all guests in attendance, but we would like to acknowledge the following special appearances (all pictured):

 Marian Wynn: a real life Rosie! She lights up the room every time she is around. 

 Ruth Hoffman: worked in the shipyards, but was asked to become a teacher here at the Maritime Child Development Center because of her educational background.

 O'Neil Dillon: Oneil was one of Ruth's very own students at the Maritime! He found his own pictures on the wall during our viewing of the exhibit!
