When Queen Anne’s County Watermen’s Association President Troy Wilkins and I asked the officers of our local VFW Post 7464 if they’d be willing to host our 2017 storytelling event, they didn’t hesitate. I think we all saw how an event like ours might provide  an  opportunity  for the general public to gain insight into a local industry that is an important component of our history and cultural heritage.

The Story Swap format has been presented successfully in the past – the Kent Island Heritage Society hosted an event a few years ago, and I led a well-received panel at the Chesapeake Storytelling Festival in April 2016.

This time, however, we’re adding a few components to the great panel of Queen Anne’s watermen lined up to participate in the Story Swap.
