Historic Ships Wharf and the Mayor's Office

I was on the seventh floor of City Hall near the mayor's office today in downtown Seattle and I was pleasantly surprised at a brochure on the waiting room table. After picking up a mayoral proclamation declaring Saturday, November 18 "Dix Remembrance Day" (see Monday entry), I noticed a neat item called "What's Happening at the Historic Ships Wharf"(at South Lake Union Park) next to a few other items. Symbolism matters, and so it was cool to see a brochure on a key maritime heritage facility so visible next to the mayor's office. The brochure, put together by the Center for Wooden Boats, talked about several maritime heritage organizations and a number of vessels. This is a great example of "getting the word out," especially to the decision-makers.
