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 dads a free water taxi ticket from St. Clement’s Island Museum to St. Clement’s Island State Park for Father’s Day. The museums normally hold a Father’s Day Open House where dads enjoy free admission, but due to the statewide shutdown, the free admission event is unable to happen. But, while our museums and historic sites remain closed, the Water Taxi that cruises to St. Clement’s Island State Park from the pier at St. Clement’s Island Museum has resumed operation effective Saturday, June 6, 2020, at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. daily.
The Museum Stores have added one free water taxi ticket for dads to the online store. To claim your single ticket, click on the ticket and add the address where you would like the admission ticket mailed. The ticket can be used any time between June 15, 2020 to July 31, 2020 but is limited to one ticket per address.
While on the online museum store claiming your free ticket, you can check out our special discount Father’s Day gift packages. There are several different gift assortments to choose from with a total value of $60 to $70 being offered at a special Father’s Day sale price of $49.99. The themes are “Maryland Proud Dad,” “Oodles of Osprey,” “Bottoms Up Dad” and a “Drayden African American Commemorative Gift package.”
“I wanted to offer something fun and unique for the fathers of Southern Maryland that would also include the free water taxi ride. Families spending outdoor time together is a great way to honor your dad and it does not have to be used on Father’s Day.” announced Jayne Walsh, the Museum Stores Manager. “These specials are gift-packaged for free delivery only and the recipient must be in Southern Maryland. You can also add a personal message to the delivery under special instructions when ordering.”
All orders placed will be delivered FREE of charge (and contact-free) between Thursday, June 18, 2020, and Sunday, June 22, 2020.
