Collectors Congregate at Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover

Plus the largest indoor garage sale in the state, St. Patrick’s Day Parade details, All-Star basketball, Prince and Princess Weekend and more.

Crazy for Collecting

Maybe you collect Matchbox Cars or Wedgewood China. Maybe you just like to come see what hidden treasures other people collect. In either case, visit the Air Mobility Command Museum in Dover on March 29 for its ninth annual Collector’s Day. The family friendly event may leave you scratching your head, or it may remind you of some hidden treasures packed away in your attic. Over the years participants have shared collections of turn-of-the-century post cards, WW I uniforms, pocket watches, trench art, football memorabilia and sunflower jewelry. All Delmarva residents are encouraged to bring their favorite collection to the museum and share it for the day. Or just drop by and check out everyone’s personal collections. You may discover someone shares your interest or find a new hobby. For additional info call the museum at 677-5991. Table space may be reserved in advance. It’s free, and you can receive a reservation form by emailing or stop by the AMC Museum. There will be prizes for best overall exhibit and most unusual collection. Take Exit 91 off of Del. 1 and follow the signs. If you simply want to check out the museum’s extraordinary collection of vintage aircraft, simulators and gear, visit any Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. till 4 p.m.

P.S.: Congratulations to Clear Space Theatre Company of Rehoboth Beach. Coming off its 10th season, it has great cause to brag: gave CSTC its No. 1 award in 15 out of 27 categories. They include several for acting, choreography, set design and sound design. “The 2013 season was a terrific one for CSTC, and having the artistic quality of our actors and creative teams’ work recognized is a wonderful tribute,” says co-founder and artistic director Doug Yetter. “Knowing that our shows were recognized for every aspect of production is especially rewarding.” For more, hit
