ANTIQUE BOAT MUSEUM ANNOUNCES OPENING WEEKEND ACTIVITIES, 2014 EVENT SCHEDULE & MORE
CLAYTON, New York (April 21, 2014)
 –
 The Antique Boat Museum (ABM),
North America’s premier
freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, announced today details of the upcoming 2014 season. The ABM will kick-off the 2014 season with a free magnetic calendar giveaway, Symposium, store sale, and more, beginning on May 2.
Opening Weekend/Symposium
The first 500 visitors to the ABM in 2014 will receive a complimentary magnetic event calendar, featuring one of the Museum
s speedboats, courtesy of Watertown Savings Bank. Symposium, which focuses on engines, is scheduled to be held May 2-4 and will be instructed by highly regarded professionals in the field. Registration remains open for this event and those interested should contact Julie Broadbent at 315-686-4104 x235. Along with Symposium, the ABM will celebrate the re-opening of its store, now known as Bowline Boutique, with a blowout sale on all remaining inventory from 2013. Plus, author Tony Mollica will make a visit to sign books on May 3 from 3-4 p.m.
2014 Events
This season, the ABM embarks on a full calendar of activity that will see more than 40 public and private events, not including the multiple ABM education courses, occur at the Museum in the 24 weeks between May 2 and October 11. Nearly every weekend not slated to host a Museum event is scheduled for a wedding or other private gathering. In May, the ABM will play host to a benefit concert featuring local rock band Minus Mike. This event will assist local radio personality Holly
Cricket
 Gaskin as she fights a genetic disease and mounting medical expenses. It is open to the public and admission is just $5. Also in May, KeyBank and the ABM will host the annual Volunteer Breakfast on May 22. This annual affair serves as a recruiting event, as well as a time for past volunteers to declare their interests in helping for the season.
