HELP US RAISE MONEY AT NO COST TO YOU
Help us raise money with every long distance call you make!



 

SNET has pledged to give The Glacier Society five cents of every dollar you spend on the long distance calls you make from your home.

There are absolutely no extra out-of-pocket costs for you. When you make in-state, out-of-state, international and calling card calls, SNET will aggregate your calls and the calls of other folks who are joining you in this effort. Then, SNET will send us a check that equals 5% of the cost of all those long-distance calls.

To help us get this money from SNET, all you need to do is call 1-800-635-7638 and tell them you want five cents of every dollar you spend on long-distance calls to go to the Glacier Society.

You may also sign up online at the SNET website. Visit: Community Connections.

When calling, please reference the Glacier Society by using the following code: 3140


RESTORATION - JULY 2000
Readying The Glacier For Drydock

 

The Glacier Society Restoration Crew has just returned from another week of work onboard Glacier in San Fransisco, CA.

July's team saw volunteers from California, New Jersey, Connecticut and Minnesota. In addition to electrical work, dewatering and cleaning the ship, Glacier also had a visit from M. Rosenblatt and Sons, POLAR class architects. They performed a necessary survey of the ship.
Thank You to all who helped make this another successful trip.

Press Room

 

House Bill #2585 was recently passed in a meeting of the House of Representatives. Attached to the Defense Authorization Bill, House Bill #2585 and itís pending companion Senate BIll #1450, allow the transfer of GLACIER to the Glacier Society. Once both bills have been approved, they will then go on to the President for final approval.
This recent success is owed to the undying support of Connecticutís Congressman Christopher Shays and Senators Christopher Dodd and Joseph Lieberman. Having realized the historical value and scientific potential involved in restoring GLACIER, Connecticutís major political figures have been behind the Glacier Society from the start.
If all goes as planned, look for GLACIER in Bridgeport Harbor by 2002.

The Stamford Yacht Club was the setting as hundreds of boating fans gathered to watch a fleet parade in honor of the Stamford Yacht Club's re-commissioning event on Saturday, May 20, 2000.

EXPLORER's Captain Bill Gertz and wife, Eileen provided luxurious transportation and the ideal vessel from which many dignitaries and guests viewed the parade. It was a fabulous, sun-filled day. All who participated had a spectacular time.
