Of An Eagle And Senior Fund Raiser

ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!

In case you've missed it, a group of eleven intrepid local mariners have launched themselves on the adventure of a lifetime. Earlier this month these hearty souls joined the Alaska Eagle, Orange Coast College's 65 foot aluminum sail training vessel, for one of seven legs of a trip that began last October and will end back home in Newport Harbor in June. On this leg the crew will head for the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia.

You can follow the adventures as chronicled by Brad Avery, director of OCC's School of Sailing & Seamanship, in his week
ly reports in the Daily Pilot. The first three can be found HERE, HERE and HERE.

SENIOR CENTER FUND RAISER AT RUBY'S THURSDAY
Just a little reminder. Thursday (today or tomorrow, depending on when you're reading this) the Costa Mesa Senior Center will be holding a fund raiser at Ruby's Diner on East 17th Street from 7:00 a.m. -9:00 p.m. Print and take this flier with you and present it to your server and the Senior Center will receive 20% of your bill as a much-needed contribution.

news?... Sure it's news! It's about an adventure for a bunch of kids - 60 or so - from OCC that will be part of a 7 month trip that takes the Alaska Eagle around the Horn. Read the articles! I don't have ANY problem writing about folks who have some money and how they spend it. Get over it!

Have you been to Ruby's yet today? I have - took my flier and made sure the Senior Center will get a few bucks from my meal.
