Gibraltar Historical Association announces its final talk of 2018, “Fish Creek Yacht Club.” Gather at the Old Gibraltar Town Hall for an evening of photos, conversation and “captains” discussing the history of the Fish Creek Yacht Club. Listen to the stories of coming around the mark or losing air and imagine Carla crossing the finish line with Ellisar, and Windbird not far behind.
Join Barb McKesson, Fish Creek resident and local historian, and help fill in the missing pieces and parts of Fish Creek’s Yacht Club history. The yacht club is an interesting topic to explore and determine why the races began, why the races faded away, and how the Cottage Row families played a role in origin. Bring your own photos or mementos to share and questions to ask.
This program will be held Sept. 27, 7 pm at the Old Town Hall, 4167 Maple Street, Fish Creek. Light refreshments will be served. The program is free and all are welcome to attend.
