In conjunction with the Astoria Regatta, Pier 39 in Astoria is holding a fine event well worthy of your attendance!
As past events have proven, the Bumble Bee/CRPA reunion 2009 is going to be a tasty blend (yes, there will be seafood, bbq, drinks, maybe even cake!) of past meets present where historic happenings are celebrated and future conservation and renewal is enacted with a healthy respect for both.
On August 15, after Astoria Regatta’s Grand Land Parade from 3 pm until 6 pm, you can
The J.O. Hanthorn Cannery Foundation‘s site has more information although a schedule of events for 2009 is right here!

From the official press release:
“Floyd Holcom, owner of Pier 39-Astoria, announces the 3rd Annual CRPA/Bumble Bee Cannery Workers Reunion, Saturday, August 15, from 3pm – 6pm. He cordially invites the public and all former CRPA/Bumble Bee Cannery workers, their families and friends. There will be delicious food, souvenirs, raffles and live music by the String of Pearls Band, playing hits from the big-band era.

Bring your photos and memorabilia to share—this is a great time for former cannery employees to reminisce about old times and re-establish connections. The Hanthorn Cannery Foundation is developing a Memorial Park and Interpretive Center dedicated to the cannery workers and their vital contribution to Astoria. The public is welcome to join in the family fun!”

Coast Guard Station Tillamook Bay ca. 1971-1973: Were you there?

We received this note from reader Dan Hubbard:

“I was stationed at CG Tillamook Bay from 1971-1793 and was Coxswain of CG44369. It was a terrifying and exhilerating experience at time, but the rewards far outdistanced the struggles. The comraderie between the people stationed there was incredible and I will never forget the Station’s dogs (Duke and Duke Jr.). I would be interested to find out where some of the other people who were there are today and what they are doing. If you were there, please e-mail be and let me know what is happening in your life.”

Leave a comment here and we’ll forward it or email to glenda.dan.hubbard@gmail.com

Thanks for being a part of History in Vogue!
