"May Maritime Day" was held May 12 at the Columbia River Maritime Museum and aboard the USCGC STEADFAST. Girl Scouts and adults signed up for an afternoon of adventure, learning and fun, and scouts earned a red, white and blue CRMM patch for their uniforms.

There was a guided tour of the cutter Steadfast, and the girls enjoyed seeing the crew don gear to fight a fire on board, the galley where everyone eats and the bridge with its views of the river. Each troop also participated in a museum "search" hosted by the Maritime Museum.

The Ear has heard that by far the biggest attraction of the day was the museum's docent, Kenny Ginn, who taught the girls how to make rope.
