Pictures from Saturday’s shoreline cleanup of the Port Tobacco River at Chapel Point State Park. It was a beautiful day on the river and our volunteers made a big difference. A park visitor who would not give his name pitched in by loading all the trash we collected into his truck for disposal. We also saw some interesting native plants — rose mallow, prickly pear, and the dreaded poison ivy.

Join PTRC and Peace Lutheran Church as member Don Zimmer describes his research on the ship True Blue, which he began when he discovered an announcement in the August 16, 1759, edition of The Maryland Gazette announcing the ship’s arrival in Nanjemoy carrying 350 Gold Coast slaves. What became of the captured and kidnapped people aboard the ship, and what can we learn about those who brought them to Maryland? The whole story of the True Blue is a difficult and complicated one, filled with people who have left their mark in history.
The program is free and open to the public.
