On Saturday, March 5, as 48 enthusiastic martial artists and their family and friends gathered at the Atlantic Steamer Fire Department to launch the 12th Annual OBEN PAL Martial Arts Kick-A-Thon.
The Kick-A-Thon, originally started by Project Action, is designed to raise money for children who want to participate in the martial arts program, but have limited economic resources. The funds raised from this event go toward providing those students in need with the opportunity to be involved in the martial arts program. Involvement in the martial arts keeps children active, physically fit, and involved in an activity that provides focus, discipline, and positive peer role-model relationships.

Work is coming along on the oyster sloop Christeen, now berthed in Building J at the Western Waterfront, as she readies for the upcoming Spring season. The National Historic Landmark needed her keel replaced which necessitated taking apart the boat below the water line, putting in the new keel, hardware, and replacing antique square nails with screws and bolts – today’s more secure system of putting ships together.
