CRESCENT CITY — Those watching the local seas for swelling white sails in the spring won’t be disappointed this year; historic tall ships Hawaiian Chieftain and Lady Washington are returning and will moor at the Crescent City Harbor beginning next week.
Scheduled to arrive April 23 and stay through the 27th, crews in costume will harken back to the 18th and 19th centuries as they host visitors aboard the high-masted replicas built in the late 1980s.
The Brookings-Harbor High School class of 1995 is among the first graduates to party at Wild River Pizza.
Brookings-Harbor High School will host an auction Saturday, April 25, to raise money for their annual Safe and Sober Graduation Night party.
Held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the BHHS cafeteria (625 Pioneer Road), the event is open to the public and will include a hamburger dinner for $5 and a silent auction. Guests can purchase a meal and receive their auction paddle at no extra cost, or buy a paddle for $5 if they choose to only participate in the auction.
