” Heroes and Sheroes” Loretta Harris is the curator of the Museum’s Black History Exhibit. She will be at the Museum on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 1 p.m. to tell the story of Ocean City’s Ford family: “Heroes and Sheroes–100 + Years of Military and Government Service”.
At the heart of the Ford family story is Ruby Wheatley Ford. In this exhibit, her offspring come together to share their stories as a tribute to her, the strong woman, loving and steadfast influence in their lives that paved the way for their success.
Everyone is welcome to attend Loretta’s free talk.
Our Black History Exhibit will continue the entire month of February.
Here you'll find everything you need to know about Ocean City: daily news coverage and comprehensive information on the island's events, businesses and services, attractions, real estate, beach and boardwalk and more.
Some kids play basketball. Some kids take dance.
And then there are those who dabble in something a bit more involved.
They make robots.
A group of middle school students do just that. Since their schools don’t have robotics clubs, the budding engineers created their own.
Emma Savov, 14, her brother, Alex, 11, and Farley O’Brien, 13, all of Linwood, and Nate Fontana, 13, of Somers Point, worked together over the last year to create a robot that they use in competitions.
