50th Anniversary of AMHS - May 1 celebration

Saturday AM

It is "may day" - a day to dance around the 'may' pole. Well, Ketchikan had its own "dance" today - around the decks of the Malaspina. What a wonderful afternoon was spent onboard, admiring once again, the grand lady of the SE coastline "Malaspina". The turn out of community members was a thrill - from the very young in strollers with mom and dad to the older generation, every age in between, and those who needed special assistance - and nary a complaint was heard. What I did overhear - many crew members exclaiming, with total awe, about the large crowd of people that just kept coming and coming. Many varied activities went ahead without a glitch - rain? so! we live in Ketchikan, the rain capitol.

The crew is excited looking ahead to all the communities that will be visited and in which there will be more community events to observe and enjoy. A BIG THANK YOU! to everyone who had a part in putting this awesome afternoon together!

SO, M/V Malaspina - have a wonderful journey North ... to the Future.
