Some lucky members also took home a one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia—a beautifully framed section of the fiberglass coral from the old reef inside the Giant Ocean Tank. At each event, a member's name was randomly selected and we were able to catch up with the winners.

Anne Blake, from Hudson, MA, and her granddaughter, Alex, were the lucky winners at our fourth and last "Welcome back, Giant Ocean Tank" member night. This is their first year as members of the Aquarium and were extremely excited to hear their membership number called out during the drawing. Anne told us, “We never win anything! We’re so honored to have this!” At last word, they’re still trying to decide where to put their beautiful piece of Aquarium history.
Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all the members who joined us during these special events for the New Aquarium Experience. What a great way to celebrate the sparkly, beautiful new tank and remember the history of this special exhibit!
