The children of Raymond E. Marshall are scattered across the country today but on Aug. 4 at 6:30 p.m. they will gather at Louie's Shore Restaurant in Port Washington for a reunion.
The well-known A. and R. Marshall, Inc. shipyard was sold in 1968 and a few years later Ray and his wife, Edith, moved to Stony Brook where Ray Marshall died in 1978.
Those expected for the reunion are: Bill and Joyce Marshall from South Dakota with their three teenage sons, Spencer, Skyler and Samuel. Chris from Colorado, Charles from Nevada, Claire Marshall McLean from Maryland, Linda and Dick Cashman with their son Rob and fiancé, Rebecca, from Douglaston and Ginger Marshall Martus from New Jersey.
The guest of honor will be Past Commodore of the Port Washington Yacht Club, "Duke" Dayton and his wife, Marion, from Manorville. "Duke" was a longtime customer since he was a young boy.
Prior to the gathering, a tour of 403 and 405 Main Street will be given by Ginger. This was once the site of the A. and R. Marshall, Inc. shipyard, now known as Inspiration Wharf.
We would be very happy to see anyone who were friends of the family, customers or employees of the company. Please stop by to say 'hello' or chat. For more information, call Ginger at 1-(609) 859-2370.
