Fundraising Dance featuring “Full Deck

A Fundraising Dance sponsored by…Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle,


On Saturday, June 28 (7 pm – 10 pm) the Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle, Gateway Bank, TowneBank of Currituck, Pepsi, and Budweiser look forward to presenting an evening filled with fun, great music, and dancing featuring the ever-popular local band “Full Deck.”  The fundraising dance will take place at the Museum of the Albemarle on the J. Wilson Jones, Jr. Festival Portico and Stage and will begin at 7:00 pm.  Dress comfortable/casual and come on out!
   Full Deck” performs a variety of musical styles including classic rock, blues, soft rock, Motown, a bit of country, as well as some original music; and features the original four band members of “Goose” that was formed back in the 1970s (Jerry Drew, Lindy Watts, David Lunsford, and Bruce Lamb).   After several years, when life got in the way and priorities changed, the bandmates went their separate ways, remaining in touch but placing their joined musical talents temporarily aside. 
    It was in 1995 that the four original band members reunited under the new moniker, “Full Deck.”   During that period and over the next fourteen years, several other local talented musicians, including Jerry White, became a part of the band.  Although others came and went, the original four remained pretty much intact while gaining the exceptionally-talented Chris Betts.  The band performed together over the next three years as “Full Deck” and entertained at practically every venue in the area including local nightclubs, the Potato Festival, Riverspree, private parties, wedding receptions, fundraisers, and in several Virginia venues.  After a three-year hiatus, those five bandmates came back together in 2013 with the addition of the much-needed keyboard talent of Sylvia Berry, bringing “Full Deck” to their complete six-member team. 
   You don’t want to miss this fun evening and other than brief intermissions, the band will continue to play through 10 pm.  Along with the great music and dancing, the ticketed event includes light snacks and a CASH BAR that includes Pepsi products, Budweiser products, and assorted wines.  So, bring a few extra dollars along with you to assure your thirst is quenched throughout the evening.  Cash Bar will accept cash only.    
   Don’t wait until the last minute to get your tickets as this is sure to be another sell-out.  There will be a few tables available as well as chairs, but to assure you have a seat, feel free to bring your own fold-up chair.  No seating will be reserved but will be on a first come basis.
*Cost per ticket:  (In Advance)… (Discount for Couples holding a current FOMOA Membership) $25 (current membership card must be shown); or Singles $15 per person regardless of membership. At the Door (regardless of membership) $20 per person.
   Tickets can be purchased at the Museum of the Albemarle only and the supply is limited.  Don’t miss this opportunity to have some early summer fun on Saturday, June 28.

History for Lunch
Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Bermuda and the Mid-Atlantic States

The Museum of the Albemarle will host History for Lunch on July 2, 2014 at 12:15 p.m.  Bring your lunch and enjoy a lecture by a different speaker each month. The museum provides the beverage.  You may come earlier to eat your lunch before the lecture begins.                 

Thinking about a summer vacation? Take a visual vacation to Bermuda. Bermuda is probably best known today for its pink sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters.  It's also only about 650 miles due east of where we live today.  No wonder, then, that there are many historic connections between this island and the eastern seaboard of North America.  This PowerPoint talk by Martha Williams, museum volunteer and archeologist, will examine the long relationship between this tropical paradise and our region of the Mid-Atlantic states.
