Aberdeen – The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority is calling on everyone with stories about the tall ship Lady Washington, the Official Ship of the State of Washington, to share those stories during her 20th anniversary year. Since her launch on March 7, 1989, more than one million people have walked her decks, and every visitor has a tale to tell. The Historical Seaport is asking past volunteers, visitors, board members, suppliers, crew, supporters, and enthusiasts to email their story with photos to [email protected]. Stories and photos will be posted on the Historical Seaport Blog, http://historicalseaport.blogspot.com/.

Many of the anecdotes will appear in a 55-minute video now in pre-production. The video is scheduled for release in early 2010.

Consider Food Recalls When Building That Emergency Preparedness Kit

Currently the United States is in the midst of one of the largest food recalls in American history. As Americans dig through their cabinets and refrigerators to remove potentially contaminated food associated with the recent peanut recall, we would like to also remind citizens to open and check their Emergency Preparedness Kits to remove any potentially harmful items from these also.

 

Because peanut products are often recommended as staples in Emergency Preparedness Kits due to their long shell life and because they are a good source of protein, we encourage all kit owners to look at their kits to ensure food products are not on the peanut recall list. Please keep in mind that the peanut product recall extends beyond peanut-flavored products.
