PNWNAM Column Raising Ceremony

August 28, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

545 Ault Field Rd., Oak Harbor            —
The ceremony begins at 11:30am and features setting the first structural support column on the centerline of the building.
In the Navy tradition of placing a coin at the foot of a ship’s mast when it is “stepped” in place, an original PBY-Naval Air Museum Challenge Coin will be placed under the first column. Win Stites, the last living member of the 14 who started the PBY Memorial Foundation will turn the ceremonial wrench on the first fastener at the base of the column. Public is invited.
No RSVP needed.
