“Ferry friend Joshua Marquis was in New York City and reading the ‘State by State’ section of the USA Today this evening (Nov. 16),” The Astoria Ferry posted on its Facebook page. “Of course he looked at Oregon first, and this is what he saw! Over 4 million copies!: “OREGON Astoria: A nonprofit is restoring the historic Tourist No. 2 ferry in hopes it can be used for river excursions, The Daily Astorian reports.”
Hopefully the blurb will generate some love for the ferry, and attract new donors (http://tinyurl.com/helpferry). As the old saying goes, you can’t even buy that kind of publicity.
