Preserving Kodiak's Maritime Heritage
KMM 2020 Annual Meeting
6:30 p.m., Friday, February 7, 2020
At Kodiak College
Please join us for a brief business meeting followed by a presentation on the history of the Kodiak Fishermen’s Wives Association. A discussion and refreshments will follow.
The Kodiak Fishermen’s Wives Association began in the 1960s as an informal fishermen’s support group and evolved into an advocacy group for marine safety. The Fishermen’s Wives gained fame in the early 1980’s for a much-loved seafood cookbook and went on to create and promote an annual survival suit team race at the Kodiak Crab Festival. The race encourages mariners to practice donning the suits quickly and as a team as a way to increase survival when boats go down.
