Pensacola Young Professionals Support Maritime Museum
The Pensacola Young Professionals (PYP), a group of proactive community members, is dedicated to developing the Pensacola Bay Area as a thriving and dynamic place to live, work and play. In line with their mission, the PYP publically announced at their July 10 meeting that they are committed to help raise funds for the Maritime Museum. UWF President Judy Bense addressed the group and commended them for their community involvement and expressed her gratitude for their generosity.
PYP member Tosh Belsinger who is heading the fundraising effort said, “I look forward to putting the energy of the PYP behind the museum in many capacities. Pensacola Young Professionals understand the importance of the Community Maritime Park for the greater Pensacola area and the role of the Maritime Museum in the Park."
