Thank you to everyone who made it out to the Malemute Saloon to attend our fundraiser on Aug. 27, 2023, to help repair the S.S. Nenana.
Everyone had a great time enjoying the music and snacks. We had drawings throughout the night for door prices and all of our silent auction items sold.
The Sternwheeler Nenana drink was a big hit also.
Tell the Fairbanks North Star Borough to save the SS Nenana, the last remaining sternwheeler in Alaska out of the 300 that once plied the Yukon and Tanana Rivers.
The FNSB has no plans to do repairs to this National History Landmark this summer. She was once the focal point of Pioneer Park and the community. Today she sits closed to the public and in disrepair, paint peeling off of the boat everywhere. There is exposed wood beginning to rot where the paint is peeled off completely.
Please sign our online petition, or you can stop by our cabin in Pioneer Park Cabin #22 to sign the petition.
We appreciate your support!
