S.S. Keewatin

FLASHBACK - Tuesday, August 25, 1936

"This is going to be a terrific outing! I'm so glad you read about this in the Midland Free Press. Yes, I have our picnic basket all ready for the trip. I thought we would eat around 4 but we can check out the refreshment booth once the boat is under way. After our dinner there should be time for us to enjoy the ship orchestra and maybe have a few dances before we dock."
