ANTIQUE BOAT MUSEUM ENCOURAGES PARTICIPATION IN NATIONAL CHERISH AN ANTIQUE DAY
CLAYTON, New York (April 7, 2014) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, New York, will celebrate “National Cherish an Antique Day” on Wednesday, April 9.
The ABM urges antique owners, and more specifically antique boat owners, to take a moment on Wednesday to cherish their aged masterpiece and relish in its historic roots.
Antique boat owners are also encouraged to submit a favorite photo of their boat to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to 10 a.m. on Wednesday for a chance to be entered in an online photo contest. Beginning at Noon on Wednesday, all submitted photos will be placed on the Museum’s Facebook page (www.facebook/antiqueboatmuseum) for a chance to win an ABM prize package, which includes admission passes, a speedboat ride for two, and a piece of merchandise. The winner will be determined by the number of ‘likes’ the photo receives. Contest will conclude on Friday at 5 p.m.
The ABM is home to North America’s largest antique boat collection with more than 300 boats and over 1,000 boating artifacts. In addition, the Museum is also host of the longest running antique boat show, which will celebrate its 50th year this August 1-3, and is known as the birthplace of the antique raceboat regatta.
The Museum will open for the 2014 season on May 2.
