Lady Washington 20TH Anniversary – Supporters encouraged to submit personal stories and photos

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/.

Learn about giving options During 2009, Lady Washington is marking her 20th year of changing people’s lives with voyages on the Columbia River and Puget Sound, accompanied by the tall ship Hawaiian Chieftain. As well as soliciting stories by email, the Historical Seaport has asked a videographer to join the ship at many of her stops and record people telling their personal Lady Washington stories. 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.

State Fire Marshal Reminds Residents to Change Your Clock, Change Your Batteries.

Remember smoke detectors save lives!

Consumer alert: Save money on your auto insurance

OLYMPIA, Wash. – As the economy continues to struggle and more people lose their jobs, it may be tempting to drop auto insurance to save money. Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler urges consumers to look for ways to save on their coverage rather than break the law and run the risk of being uninsured.  

“In today’s economy, people are cutting corners wherever they can, but cancelling your insurance is not the answer,” said Kreidler. “Instead, shop around to find a lower rate. I continue to be surprised by how much some consumers save simply by shopping around. It will save you money now and could protect you from complete financial ruin in the future.”
