On behalf of the Mathews Historical Museum, we thank you Mathews—our citizens, employees, officials, their families and friends—for your support for “Celebrating Mathews Watermen,” at May Faire 2022 on Saturday.
We are fortunate to be living in Mathews County with generations of brave watermen and women as our forebears. We celebrate them. At the podium, our U.S. Coast Guard was recognized by Delegate Keith Hodges, who on behalf of Congressman Rob Wittman, presented a proclamation to Chief Petty Officer Joshua Menges, Officer in Charge of U.S. Coast Guard Station, for service from an appreciative community.
The Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary are an integral part of our Mathews family, and we thank them for their service. The county administrative staff, school officials, VDOT, the sheriff’s department, our community service organizations and the Gazette-Journal were generous with their support, and for that we are most grateful.
