Opening Day 2015

It was a beautiful sunny day for our annual Opening Day celebration, and thank you to all who attended. Tom Boyes and Jay Warner did an outstanding job making the event a success. Also, our secretary Julie Boise made everything easy for the officers because of her excellent organization and planning.

SS Catalina ************* The Great White Steamer

SS Catalina, also known as The Great White Steamer, was a 301-foot steamship built in 1924 that provided passenger service on the 26-mile passage between Los Angeles and Santa Catalina Island from 1924 to 1975. According to the Steamship Historical Society of America, the Catalina has carried more passengers than any other vessel anywhere. Catalina also served as a troop ferry during World War II, transporting more than 800,000 soldiers and sailors. After a period of service as a floating discotheque, the ship ran aground on a sandbar in Ensenada Harbor in 1997 and remained there half-submerged and decaying for more than a decade.

I made many trips to the island on the steamer.  In 1964 a ticket was $7.00.

I was making $1.25 per hour. ***************Check out this short video,
