2014 - Poker Run

MMF held a poker run in 2014 to benefit Peggy of New Point's restoration. Bikers from Mathews, Gloucester, Hampton, Newport News and Richmond came out to ride and pick crabs at the Boat Shop on Gwynn’s Island. 
Peggy attended the Urbanna Oyster Festival and volunteers introduced students to the art of pound net fishing and the 2-man saw, part of Marine Education Day for Middlesex Co. schools.
Also this year, local artist Jane Partin painted the deckboat Peggy, selling prints to benefit the Peggy Endowment Fund.
