Annual Ice-Out Event to help kick off  2019 season for New Hampshire Boat Museum
Wolfeboro, NH– March 21, 2019–The New Hampshire Boat Museum (NHBM) will welcome spring with its Annual Ice-Out Event, sponsored by Maxfield and Island Real Estate, on Friday, April 12. 
“It is the perfect night out after being cooped inside all winter,” said Executive Director Martha Cummings, who noted the term, ‘Ice-Out,’ will be emphasized at the event. “We will host a Ice-Out 50/50 raffle where participants can bet on when the ice on Lake Winnipesaukee will melt.”  
The event also serves as a kickoff to the museum’s 2019 season, which opens in late June. In addition to renovations to its current building, the 2019 season will feature the Buoy! Up Campaign, which is raising money for a new home, located on a 4 acre lot on Back Bay.
Chip Maxfield, owner of Maxfield and Island Real Estate, said they are honored to play a part in NHBM’s exciting year.
“We are very excited about this sponsorship,” he said.“The Boat Museum brings so much positivity to the community and we are glad that we can share a part in that.” 
Cummings added, “2019 is going to be a big year for us and Wolfeboro. We hope you join us at our Ice Out event to have fun and learn more.”
Hosted by the The Barn at Inn on Main in Wolfeboro, the event begins at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 12. Ticket prices are $65 for museum members and $70 for not-yet-members.
