There are a lot of perks that come with membership at the New England Aquarium, like express admission all year and discounts at the Cafe and Gift Shop. Now you can add our new Member of the Week contest to that list. How can members participate? Just show up and visit your Aquarium! We'll be randomly selecting members for this special honor throughout the fall.
Meet Ganesh and Medha (she's the little fish) from Boston. They visited with their friends Jessica and Zachary today and were surprised with the distinction of being our members of the week! Ganesh said they became members just last month because it's a great place to visit with the little ones. "When you have toddlers, you just want to visit for 45 minutes at a time," he said. With membership, you can come and go as often as you please!

Medha couldn't wait for Halloween to show off her fish costume. She was in excellent company here at the Aquarium. Zachary is planning to be a dragon (not of the seadragon variety), but his little sister is going to be a penguin! For being our Member of the Week, the kids took home some adorable plush rays.
So what do you have to do to be our Member of the Week? Just visit! You could win on any day of the week, any time of day. We'll be announcing winners right here on the News Blog every Friday. So come on down and visit Myrtle in her new home in the penguin exhibit, check in with those boisterous sea lions, search for seadragons, see the little blue penguins in their temporary exhibit and experience the Aquarium's exciting transformation first hand. Who knows, you could be our next Member of the Week!
