Captain Eugene Bailey was our special guest, with his wife, Juanita, who flew to Juneau solely for the unveiling of the Presentation Silver. Captain Bailey was the first Captain to bring the third USS Juneau named for our city to its namesake port.

Lions Donna Hurley and Tom Dawson with their "visual" story: The long string of pearls represents the 697 officers and crew that died when the USS Juneau was torpedoed and sunk; the shorter string represents the ones left adrift in shark-infested waters for eight days before being rescued; and the shortest string of pearls representing the ten who were rescued.
|The longest string 532 men who died onboard, second string 165 men blown off ship into water,|
and 3rd string of 14, 4 who lived by transfer and 10 who survived 8 days in water.
|International Director Lion Lewis Quinn and Lion Donna Hurley. |
ID Lewis received a dome that holds 3 pearls, one for each ship named for Juneau
with an angel's wing to remind us that we are the guardians of their memories.
