Presented by Dan Parker

South Jetty News Editor Dan Parker will present a slide show on the newspaper’s 48-year history and some of the most significant and funky Port Aransas news events that the paper has covered over the years. The photos in his presentation will show you everything from Spring Break mayhem to the biggest fire in Port Aransas history.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for a cheese and wine reception in the museum, and the public is encouraged to browse the Museum and shop in the Gift Shop. At 7 p.m. everyone moves across the walkway to the Community Center for the lecture.
