The artists’ reception for the Merry-Go-Fish project planned for Sunday, Sept. 9, at the Port Exploreum has been cancelled.

The Exploreum won’t be ready to reopen by then, said John Sigwart, a member of the Greater Port Washington Kiwanis Club and its playground committee.

The reception won’t be rescheduled, he added.

The Exploreum’s lower level and its elevator were damaged during last week’s flood.

The Merry-Go-Fish project is a fundraiser for Possibility Playground, with artists decorating wooden fish. The fish have been displayed throughout the community this summer.

They may also be displayed at the Exploreum throughout the remainder of September, in preparation for the Kiwanis Club’s gala on Oct. 5, when the fish will be auctioned off that day.

Tickets to the gala may be purchased at the Exploreum website or from Kiwanis Club members.
