Seafood Shindig @ Ocean Shores Lions Club
Jul 5 @ 2:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The Coastal Interpretive Center is having a fundraising event called the “Seafood Shindig.” The event will feature local Quinault Tribal members preparing salmon in the traditional way. It will be served with coleslaw, garlic bread, water or pop, and dessert. Spaghetti will be offered as an alternative if someone would rather not have salmon. Galway Bay Pub is partnering to offer additional beverages for sale in an outside beer garden. We are selling tickets for three timeslots (2:00, 4:00, and 6:00). Tickets are available at Coastal Interpretive Center, Ocean Shores Visitor Center, The Dusty Trunk, Sipping Serendipity, Gordon’s Antiques, and in Aberdeen at GH Wine Sellars and the Visitors Center.

In addition to the dinner, we will be having a silent auction and raffle items during each time slot. We hope that lots of our locals see the benefit of keeping the Interpretive Center open for all to enjoy.

Bill Lindstrom Discusses Infamous Grays Harbor Man @ Aberdeen Timberland Librar
Jan 25 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Lindstrom presents a lecture, “Villain or Victim: Revisiting the legend of John Tornow.”

Lindstrom’s meticulously researched history reads like a blend of mystery and tragedy. It reinterprets the life of an enigmatic man accused of heinous crimes.
The author poured over century-old court documents, transcripts, news
articles and interviews to produce an authoritative and compassionate account. He brings to life the circumstances – family, friends, daily routines, personal sorrows – that led to multiple murders, a 19-month manhunt and an enduring Northwest legend.
 
Books will be available for purchase and signing at this event.
