The National Park Service has begun restoring the tiles in the activity well near the Titanic Memorial. The park is going to look great in April - just in time for our Titanic 110th Anniversary Activities.
Read on for the latest:
Just 12 Days Left to Buy Tickets
There are just 12 more days to buy tickets for the Gala & Tribute on April 16! Join over 80 friends and neighbors who have already bought their tickets, and share your love of the Park with NPS Rangers and community leaders who will be attending. We'll reveal the latest plans for improving the park while we sip wine and share Titanic-inspired hors d'oervres like Chartreuse Peaches.
Tickets are on sale through April 9 - make sure you get yours before the deadline!
Note: Arena Stage maintains its own COVID protocols to ensure that guests and patrons can enjoy their facilities safely. These precautions may be more stringent than DC COVID requirements, and are subject to change.
Our volunteer shifts are filling in nicely, and we still have some available from April 14 - 17. Volunteers get this snazzy hat to wear! We'll provide a brief orientation to all volunteers so you know what to do. Sign up using Signup Genius to help. Here's a little more detail about the help we need:
Staff the Information Table - We have two-hour shifts from April 14 - 17 to staff the Friends information table. We will provide training and answers to Frequently Asked Questions. The table will have information about the Titanic Memorial and the Friends. This is a great way to meet neighbors and share your love of the Park.
Set up/Tear down Park Displays - The park displays include a series of large yard-sign-type posters, as well as about 2,400 landscape flags that will be installed in a foam base. At the end of each day, we will need a crew to move the assembled displays to a nearby location off of the Park site, and each morning we'll need a crew to put them back in place.
Please sign up using Signup Genius for one or more shift. We'll contact you with more information, like orientation dates and times, as we get closer to the event.
Have you wondered whether any babies survived when the Titanic sank? One of our Stories of Bravery, Tragedy, and Survival tells about Millvina Dean, who was the youngest survivor at just two months old.
Just a reminder: We'll be sending weekly emails to keep you up-to-date on the 100th Anniversary. We'll go back to monthly emails later in April.
