Screening of 3 Brave Men - Thank You!

Thanks so much to everyone who attended our recent screening of 3 Brave Men! We counted over 160 people in the Old Greenbelt Theatre and are so grateful to everyone who donated money in support of the Museum!

Our sincere thanks to the Chasanow family, especially Judge Howard Chasanow, for sharing his family history, to Caitlin McGrath (Executive Director of the Old Greenbelt Theatre), and to our event sponsors: Richard and Pamela Gregory, Maryland Milestones/ATHA, Inc., the City of Greenbelt, and the Old Greenbelt Theatre.



This event is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Greenbelt Museum, if you plan to attend the screening only, donations are appreciated! 

Thank you!
