Lincoln County Historical Society Annual Meeting

Yaquina Bay Shipwrecks

Tami Whittlesey as “The Captain’s Wife” will be the featured speaker at the Annual Meeting of the Lincoln County Historical Society on Sunday, September 20. The meeting will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center.

Tami Whittlesey, of the Lincoln County Historical Society, works not only as a host in the Society’s two museums, but also volunteers by reaching out to audiences with “history-telling.” Dressed as her shipwreck-appropriate persona “The Captain’s Wife,” Whittlesey will present Rescue, Recovery and Loss: Yaquina Bay Shipwrecks.

During the business portion of the meeting, Historical Society Director Steve Wyatt will be sharing a Phase II and Grant Award update. The Society will also hold elections for its board of directors. Up for election are Robert Olson, James Bassingthwaite, Bud Shoemake, John Baker, Sara Skamser, Dolores Wagner, Melody Schones, Dawn Pavitt, and Bill Hanshumaker. While open to the public, only society members may vote.

Admission to the Annual Meeting is free for Historical Society members, and $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call (541) 265-7509.
