Though war rages around the sleepy plantation of Sotterley, and the ravages and carnage of battle are evident, life still goes on. Lovers meet, slaves dream of freedom, mothers mourn the loss of husbands and children, and soldiers, far from home, look for comfort and companionship. Take a trip back in time and witness the tears, laughter, and sorrows during the tumultuous year of 1814.

"SPAT: Bringing Oysters Back
"SPAT: Bringing Oysters Back
to the Chesapeake Bay"
Wednesday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Barn
After centuries of over-harvesting, and recurring bouts of devastating diseases, oyster populations in the Chesapeake Bay plummeted along with the profits of the industry and the health of the Bay. In 2013, more than a billion hatchery-raised baby oysters were added to the Bay and new breeds of disease-resistant, meatier, faster-growing oysters are thriving in commercial aquaculture. Culture and ecology clash in this captivating story about one of the Bay's most important critters. "SPAT: Bringing Oysters Back to the Chesapeake Bay" is directed and produced by Sandy Cannon-Brown, who is passionate about the vitality of ecosystems and the protection and health of their inhabitants.
Ms. Canon-Brown's personal awards include the prestigious Woman of Vision award from Women in Film & Video and Special Achievement Awards for script writing and directing from TIVA (Television, Internet and Video Association of DC). She has also earned dozens of top awards in international festivals.
This event is FREE to the public. Advance reservations are required due to limited seating. Call 301-373-2280 to make your reservation.
