Percival Landing Fundraising Campaign

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

RTA member John Earle shared this with us, some folks may want to participate in this program, maybe a plaque with their tug name.  John took some photos of the ceremony, you can see them in the photo gallery section of the website.  http://retiredtugs.org/photos/percival-landing-opening-ceremonies/ and sent in this report:

“The town of Olympia is very upbeat about Percival Landing.  Captain John Percival’s  granddaughter was also present. The actual mooring floats are still the same.  The boardwalk and facilities for the public are all nice and new.  Ready for an enormous (and much needed) influx of tugboats!”
