The Vice President of the California Association of Harbor Masters and Port Captains, Lisa Ekers, led a wonderful celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Santa Cruz Harbor last Friday. The story of the harbor’s formation was told, and there were speeches from Lt. Col. John Baker, P.E., of USACE, Capt. Gregory Stump, of USCG, Sylvia Ortega Hunter from DBW and Congressman Sam Farr – all accompanied by great music and food in a wonderful setting on the west side of the harbor.
Here’s a great photo from the Santa Cruz Sentinel :
