"Of all national assets, archives are the most precious:
they are the gift of one generation to another,
and the extent of our care of them marks the
extent of our civilization." Arthur Doughty.

Bellingham Christmas Ship 
in the San Juan Islands, 2013.
Through the years, Bellingham Junior Chamber of Commerce, the Bellingham Jaycees, the Bellingham Sea Explorer Scouts, Captains Don Wight, father and son, and multiple Lions Clubs with their hundreds of loyal volunteers have guided Santa Claus through the winter storms to the children of the San Juan Archipelago and the Gulf Islands! 
      Mr. Pete Zuanich was the first skipper to volunteer with his fish boat, in 1947.
      What a kind, generous crew supporting Santa while he jumps ashore to spread good cheer.
