The Hampton Roads Ship Model Society is celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2017.  Formed in 1967, the HRSMS meets every second Saturday at 10:00 am at the Mariners Museum.  To celebrate our 50th anniversary, the Mariners Museum is displaying over 50 models built by its members.  This display will run for approximately six months.  Here is a link to the Mariners' Museum HRSMS 50th Anniversary Exhibit.

Here is an ad that ran in the Daily Press earlier this week:

Here are some pictures of the reception that the Mariners' Museum held for the HRSMS members and their guests.  Howard H. Hoege, III, President and CEO of the Mariners' Museum was the guest speaker.

Here is the last batch of pictures.  I took more pictures, but they turned out blurred.  I will re-take them and post them on this topic at a later date.  Please check out our website at http://www.hrsms.org and if you are in the Tidewater area of Virginia on the second Saturday of each month, please come and visit one of our meetings.
