Mayor WILLIS VAN DUSEN presented the Governor's Achievement Award to MARIAN and MIKE SODERBERG at the May 21 Astoria City Council meeting, as other cruise ship hosts packed the Council Chamber.
The volunteer hosts greet cruise ships that call at Astoria and make the passengers feel welcome. Van Dusen said, "It's a real tribute to Marian and Mike and a real tribute to Astoria. Teamwork works!"
The Soderbergs, both retired schoolteachers, received a chorus of "Hip, Hip, Hurrays."
