Retired Coast Guardsman Tom McAdams will be the guest of honor at an Autumn Social hosted by Newport’s Pacific Maritime Heritage Center this Friday, Nov. 1.

McAdams, an Oregon Coast local known nationally for his storied and highly decorated life-saving Coast Guard career, will be sharing tales of local seafaring history in the museum’s Doerfler Family Theater. Aside from McAdams’ presentation there will be time to enjoy museum exhibits, chat with staff and mingle with friends, old and new.

The evening will begin at 6 pm with a brief annual meeting. All society members are encouraged to attend and vote on a slate of board officers.

McAdams’ talk will follow at 6:30 pm. A cookie buffet, cider and coffee will be served.

The Pacific Maritime Heritage Center is located at 333 SE Bay Blvd on Newport’s Historic Bayfront. Parking is available at the top of the hill adjacent to the museum.
