On August 1, Nauticus held a ceremonial unveiling of the “Restore BB 64” recognition stand honoring their 2012 volunteer groups. Among those being recognized was a group from Valkyrie Enterprises who adopted the ship’s navigation bridge. In 2012, 625 total members of the “Restore BB 64” program contributed over 6,500 hours to aid in the restoration of the Battleship Wisconsin.
Photographed from left to right are: Kathleen Daniels, who helped coordinate Valkyrie’s involvement with the “Restore BB 64” effort, volunteers, Bob Yurchuck (Joanne Brook’s brother-in-law), Brian Scheible, Rick Shaw, Kathy Damron, Jeff O’Donnell, Kat Ciesielski, Kate Green and Juli Mansfield, Volunteer Services Coordinator at Nauticus and Battleship Wisconsin.
Many thanks to ALL of our Valkyrie volunteers and your friends and family members who have come to volunteer with you. We head back onboard in early September and would love to see some fresh faces join our team!
