The Museum of the Marine will bring to Jacksonville, NC a world class museum that will honor the contributions and sacrifices of Marines, their units, their families, and the Carolina communities that support them. Starting in 1941 with the establishment of Camp Lejeune and outposts throughout the Carolinas, they will showcase the many unique contributions of Carolina Marines.
The Museum of the Marine will present this rich history by utilizing high-tech, hands-on multimedia experiences, first-person reminiscences, recreated environments, and displays of materials and military equipment to dramatically tell stories within a historical context.
The Museum of the Marine will be a vital link connecting the past with the future. This experience will look at history through the eyes of the history-makers, celebrating the epic accomplishments of the Marine Corps, the humanity of the Marine, and the support of the Community for the Corps.
We will also be raising money for the North Carolina Brewers Guild. The NCBG is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 tax exempt organization comprised of brewers, vendors, retailers, and craft beer enthusiasts focused on promoting North Carolina beer.
North Carolina boasts the largest number of craft breweries in the American South, with 21 brewpubs and 28 packaging breweries.
NCBG's main objective is to promote NC beer — local, fresh, craft beer. They want to support the beer communities in the state and guide the craft beer aficionados by providing the one source that allows access to the breweries, brewers and their beers where ever they are served, presented, celebrated.
We hope that you can join us on 26 January for this exciting festival!
Cash only please.
