Living Classrooms Foundation’s flagship and first “living classroom,” pungy schooner Lady Maryland, was dry docked at Frederick Douglas-Isaac Myers Maritime Park for the winter and is now back in the water. She is now undergoing several tests with her official relaunch taking place in April. After 26 years of providing hands-on educational shipboard programming to over 250,000 students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, the vessel was hauled out for extensive repairs and is now ready to start serving students in her 27th year sailing. The estimated cost for her repairs is $180,000 and a major fundraising campaign has been underway to keep this critical learning vessel afloat.
The Lady Maryland Tie is contributing to help the fundraising effort. This dark green and pink tie with the Lady Maryland in white repeated on the stripe is great tie for a great cause! For more information you can visit http://www.livingclassrooms.org/hands-on/saveLM.html
