4 Things I'm Thankful For

Reflecting on our successes this week, I'd like to celebrate and extend my thanks to some of the people who make our work possible:

Our Lifelong Learners 
On Monday, we welcomed a group of visiting students for a Whales of the Salish Sea class. It was a very successful program and one student's first time experiencing the ocean! It's inspiring to witness students developing relationships with the Salish Sea.

Our Generous Donors
On Tuesday, we participated in the GiveBIG campaign. I am happy to report that we surpassed our goal of $13,000, raising a total of $17,182!

We are thrilled with this 36% increase over last year and a new GiveBIG record for the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.

Our Friends & Members 
On Wednesday at the PTMSC annual meeting, Executive Director Janine Boire highlighted PTMSC's 2014 successes and future goals, Dr. Joseph K. Gaydos delivered an inspiring presentation and slideshow on his new book, The Salish Sea, Jewel of the Pacific North West, to a full house, and over 100 PTMSC members and friends flipped through their newly signed copies of his work.

Our Volunteers
On Friday, PTMSC volunteers pulled a 150-foot seine net through the eelgrass by the pier to collect fish for our exhibits. Come see the latest additions to the Marine Exhibit tanks this weekend, Friday - Sunday, 12-5. Remember, moms receive free admission to all our exhibits on Sunday in celebration of Mother's Day.

Thank you to all our members, donors, volunteers, students, and friends for making this week such a success at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center.
