      A very HappyThanksgiving to you all as well.  I know we sure have lots to be thankful for!
      This Friday is also a special day.  The Lewis and Clark National Park Association (the bookstore) is celebrating their 50th year.  The association has done so much through the years to help the park, from helping to purchase lands for expansion, sponsoring many education programs and much, much more.  There will be cake and displays in the Netul Room starting at 1:00.  I know some of you are members and have helped by purchasing books and such which helps a great deal.
      Enjoy this special day of thanks.

       In Their Footsteps

       US Coast Guard Air Station and Group Astoria

      Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to announce December’s In Their Footsteps free speaker series event.  This month’s program is US Coast Guard Air Station and Group Astoria by Susan L. Glen.  This talk and book-signing event is scheduled for Sunday, December 15, at 1:00 p.m. in Fort Clatsop visitor center's Netul River Room.
      US Coast Guard Air Station and Group Astoria was established in 1964 at Tongue Point. It is currently headquartered at the Astoria Regional Airport in Warrenton two miles from Fort Clatsop.  The group includes Air Station Astoria, the Aids to Navigation Team, Station Grays Harbor at Westport, (Washington), Station Cape Disappointment in Ilwaco and Station Tillamook Bay at Garibaldi. It also supports the USCG cutter Alert, USCG cutter Steadfast, USCG cutter Fir, the National Motor Lifeboat School, the Electronic Support Detachment at Astoria, the Advanced Rescue Swimmer School, the Marine Safety Detachment, and the Advanced Helicopter Rescue School. In 2011 the unit became USCG Sector Columbia River.
      USCG Air Station and Group Astoria is Sue Glen’s fifth book in Arcardia Publishing’s Images of America series.  Each of these books features more than 200 vintage images, capturing often forgotten bygone times and bringing to life the people, places, and events that defined a community.   Her previous titles are Governors Island, Seaside: 1920-1950, Fort Stevens, and Warrenton-Hammond.
      Susan L. Glen is a former school teacher married to a retired Coast Guard helicopter pilot who was stationed at Air Station Astoria from 1976 to 1981. They returned to the area following his retirement after 29 years of service, and the photographs in this book are from many people who have been stationed here since the base’s inception, as well as from Coast Guard Community Relations.  Glen loves history and is very active with the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and several historical and genealogical societies.  Her new book will be available for purchase in the Lewis & Clark National Park Association bookstore in the visitor center during this event and she will have a book-signing after her talk.
      This third Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association.  These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
      For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
