Members of the Week: Ann-Mara and Lara-Kate

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 recognition 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 Ann-Mara and Lara-Kate from Wellesley, our Members of the Week. They visited this week with Lara-Kate’s “best friend in the whole wide world,” Amelia, when the girls had no school due to a power outage. They originally became members many years ago because Ann-Mara’s son and Lara-Kate’s older brother, Nathan, “loves animals and fish.” In fact, his mother told us that he wants to become a marine biologist. In a year or two Nathan might want to become a live blue Ambassador or participate in one of the Aquarium’s many Teen Programs

For being our Members of the Week, they received a free 4”x6” photo from our friends at SharpShooter, a copy of Ice Island, by Dr. Greg Stone Ph.D., Aquarium Senior Vice President of Ocean Exploration and Conservation, and each of the girls took home a stuffed shark.

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!
