(Hagerstown, MD): The Washington County Association of Museums and Historical Sites (WCAMHS) and the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), sponsored the 7th Annual Museum Ramble, held earlier this year. The annual self-guided tour included special events at twenty local museums and historic sites.
One of the highlights of this year's event was the Museum Ramble Passport, which was given out at the CVB's Visitor Welcome Center in Downtown Hagerstown and at the participating museums. "Ramblers" kept track of their museums, and at the end of their trek, hundreds were dropped off at various museums throughout the county. One passport was drawn recently, and the winners were contacted.
According to Washington County Association of Museums and Historical Sites President Bill Knode, "After collecting all the passports from all the museums, we held a drawing at our annual picnic. We were very pleased to contact the winners, and we arranged to deliver to them the free basketful of goodies!"
The winners were Penny Oliver of Hagerstown and her daughters Abygale and Ashley Navarrete. The trio of Museum Ramblers had visited several museums and sites during the 7th Annual Museum Ramble, and was very pleased to be drawn as the winners.
According to organizers of the Museum Ramble, attendance was up this year, and visitors came from more than ten different states. "It is a great annual event for Washington County, and a terrific way to celebrate our many museums and historical sites."
