The Peggy Endowment Fund was established in 2012, for the upkeep and maintenance of the Peggy of New Point.
This same year, her pilot house won a trophy for Best Float by a Non-Commercial Organization in the Mathews Christmas Parade.
In 2011, MMF received the Albert B. Corey/Leadership in History Award for work on the Mathews Maritime Heritage Trail. The award was presented by the American Assoc. for State and Local History at their annual conference in Richmond, VA. Shown here are Dave Montgomery, Janet Loyd, Dave Machen & Marcy Benouameur.
Also that year, the Maritime Foundation honored master boat builder Edward Diggs. A surprise reception was held for him in the Museum's newly renovated exhibit area, filling it with his boat models.
