Welcome New Coast Guard Members 

We love welcoming new Coast Guard members and their families to our beautiful town! This year’s welcome packets are being assembled by our Promo Committee, and we are looking at an increase of 200 bags needed for the area units of Base Astoria, Air Station, ALERT, Elm, and MLBS in Ilwaco. There are nearly 50 downtown businesses offering Military Discounts for Coast Guard families, and over 20 businesses have donated coupons and small items (i.e. key chains, candy, stickers) that can go in each bag. If you would like to help assemble the bags, offer a discount, or donate coupons/small items, contact Lyra at events@astoriadowntown.com. The volunteer meet-up for assembling USCG Welcome Packages is scheduled for May 23rd, 8:00am at Erickson Floral Company. Thank you to all of the businesses that have donated/offered discounts so far!
