December 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Join Education Curator Benjamin Wunderly in the museum auditorium as he covers the history of the United States Lifesaving Service in North Carolina. The small crews of this service, the predecessor to the United States Coast Guard, rescued hundreds of sailors in a time when most people traveled by water. Come learn about the various stations along our coast and how the surfmen carried out their duties.

Free, no registration required for the in-person program, held in the museum auditorium. Or watch online live via the museum’s Facebook page or Zoom.

Registration costs, less a 10% fee, are refunded when the museum receives cancellation notice at least 48 hours before the start of a program. There is no refund within 48 hours of the start of a program, and tickets cannot be transferred to a later program date within that 48 hour timeframe. Due to material costs and supply, Harvey W.

The Museum reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet the minimum participant requirement up to one week before the program is scheduled. In the event of cancellation due to low enrollment, participants who have submitted a fee will receive a full refund. If a program is canceled due to inclement weather and unable to be rescheduled for another date, the participants will receive a full refund.
