Sixth Annual Heritage Heroes Celebration
at The Wharves of the Choptank Visitor Center Theatre
in Denton, Maryland.
The certified heritage area for Caroline, Kent, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot counties, Stories of the Chesapeake will announce its 2018 Heritage Hero Awards at this event. Heritage Heroes are those individuals, organizations, or projects that advance the heritage area’s goals to preserve, promote, and interpret the natural, cultural, historic, and archaeological resources that define this special place.
We are honored and excited to present this year’s keynote speaker, journalist, and radio documentarian Michael Buckley. For the past 20 years, Buckley has hosted a weekly radio program that airs Sunday mornings on 103.1 WRNR-FM Annapolis (www.wrnr.com). His show includes an eclectic mix of music and a widely acclaimed oral history interview series, “Voices of the Chesapeake Bay”. For this series, Buckley has crisscrossed the six-state, 64,000 sq. mile Chesapeake Bay watershed, interviewing over 500 of its residents: farmers, Native Americans, watermen, writers, politicians, and many others.
In addition to sampling local foods and libations, guests can participate in a silent auction to raise money for Heritage Area grants, workshops, and marketing.
