Society Management Team
The Glacier Management Team
met in early September 2002 at the Glacier Society Headquarters
at FastInc in Brigeport, CT. Our purpose was to review the status
of restoration plans and to map out future strategies for our work
in California. High on the list of topics was the impending move
from the MARAD facility on the Sacramento River to alongside a pier
in the immediate vicinity. We are working strenuously to clean up
and outfit the ship prior to such a move. While pier side we will
be engaging in work on the ship's propulsion system and working
with volunteers from Elderhostel starting in Spring of 2003.
