Thank you for dredge’s 20th rebirthday party

I would like to thank everyone who came to the 20th rebirthday party for the Sixty Mile Dredge at Alaska 360’s Dredge Town. It was overwhelming to see so many people come out and enjoy all the stories and songs dedicated to this incredible machine that even wore a top hat to celebrate the occasion.

A special thanks to Andrew Nadon for the magic, Rachel Rowley for the cake,  Bea Lingle for the poem and present and, of course, the staff of Alaska 360 past and present that came and even saw the dredge ducks. The dredge is such a part of Skagway and we thank you all for the love you showed us Saturday, June 15.
