The Olympia Yacht Club boat won the People's Choice Trophy in the 2009 Daffodil Marine Parade presented by the Tacoma Yacht Club. It also won the theme competition. (Staff file photo)

I’m writing to thank The News Tribune for recently publishing a couple of historical Tacoma Yacht Club (TYC) photos in your “Looking Back” feature. As a TYC member, I loved seeing these shots and reading about each photo.

The publication timing was perfect as our club has done some “looking back” at our history recently as part of our preparations for the 60th anniversary of our Daffodil Marine Parade coming up on Sunday. This year we are trying something new.

Our Facebook site will be used to help determine the People’s Choice Trophy, which is awarded to the parade boat most liked by the public. We invite everyone to participate during the parade. Like us on Facebook and tune in Sunday at 11:15 a.m.

Happy spring, Tacoma!
