Many thanks to the players and supporters of the Heritage's Basket and Bag Bingo at the Port Deposit VFW over the weekend. Thanks to donors like Maggie Jackson, Patsy Grace, Judy Leonard, Lois Ashworth, Glen Longacre, George Maldeis, Evelyn Jordan, Beverly Narvell and Nellie Hipkins, plus workers like Laura Luongo, Elizabeth Gibson, Stephanie Gibson, Steven and Christine Farley, Anne Gibson and my husband, Rick Bierly – the Heritage was able to have a successful fundraiser. This non-profit organization relies on its annual fundraiser to continue its education, preservation and restoration efforts in this area. The Port Deposit Heritage Corporation owns and operates the Paw Paw Museum at 98 N. Main St.
