We had a wonderful day at Pioneer Park yesterday for the first Annual SS Nenana Day, “Celebrating the Last Lady of the River”. The weather cleared up and the sun was warm and bright! The children had a good time playing games, drawing with chalk on the street along with free balloons and popcorn.
We made new friends and met some old ones during the day sharing about our group with people and our journey to bring the SS Nenana back to be open to the public again.
We were able to film and document two elders stories that had worked on the SS Nenana. Thank you to Don Honea Sr. and Al Wright for sharing with us and Pete Van Nort for your continued support in filming these stories and journey!
