News Release, St. Mary’s County Public Information Office

LEONARDTOWN, MD– The Friends of St. Clement’s Island & Piney Point Lighthouse Museums are offering all moms a free admission ticket to either museum site operated by the St. Mary’s County Museum Division to utilize in the future once the sites are back open. The museums normally hold a Mother’s Day Open House where moms enjoy free admission, but due to the statewide shut down, the free admission event is unable to happen.

Karen Stone, Manager for the St. Mary’s County Museum Division, noted “With the weather breaking around Mother’s Day, we’ve always had so many families visiting the Piney Point Lighthouse Museum and St. Clement’s Island Museum on Mother’s Day for our free admission open house. Under the current circumstances, we still wanted to extend this offer to moms for a future visit to our sites.”

The Museum Stores have added a free admission ticket for moms to the online store. To claim your ticket for the moms in your life, click on the ticket and add the address where you would like the admission ticket mailed.

Alternatively, while on the online store claiming your free ticket, you can check out fun discount Mother’s Day Packages. There are 4 different gift assortments to choose from with total value of $60 to $70 being offered for a special Mother’s Day price of $49.99. The themes are “Maryland Proud,” “Oodles of Osprey,” “MD State Shines” and “Maryland Beach Time.”

“I wanted to offer something special for the moms of Southern Maryland who are often holding together the family during this trying time. These special packages are gift-packaged for free delivery only and the recipient must be in St. Mary’s County. You can even add a personal note to the delivery under special instructions when ordering.” revealed Jayne Walsh, the museum store manager.

All orders placed will be delivered free of charge (and contact-free) between Thursday, May 7 and Sunday, May 10.
