First Wednesday Luncheon to Feature Alaska Quest

Many Port Ludlow residents have been curious about the 65-foot blue-and-white trawler, Alaska Quest, that’s moored at the local marina. The story behind the boat will be revealed at the First Wednesday Luncheon, to be held on November 2, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Beach Club.

Admiral Tish and Captain Tom Satre will show slides and share their appreciation of Southeast Alaska’s natural wonders—from calving glaciers and fishing bears, to breaching whales and dancing dolphins. The Satres say those beautiful wildlife encounters have enriched their retirement time during the many months each year they’ve enjoyed aboard Alaska Quest.

Luncheon attendees are asked to bring food bank dona- tions in the form of checks payable to “Tri-Area Food Bank,” cash, nonperishable food, or hygiene products. The luncheon will include a raffle, with proceeds used to support the food bank, during the two summer months when the luncheon is on hiatus.

Due to continued uncertainty regarding the Covid pandemic, the organization is asking participants to bring their own lunches and any needed utensils. The First Wednesday group will provide cookies, coffee, tea, and water. Reservations can be made by emailing a2209c|||plvoice|||org|||First Wednesday , or by signing up at either the Bay Club or Beach Club by October 31.
