The city of Juneau will commemorate that anniversary with a series of community activities leading up to a solemn memorial on the waterfront.
The U.S.S. Juneau Remembrance Planning Committee will hold two public meetings this week to plan for those activities.
Assembly member Randy Wanamaker is coordinating the events.
“We want it to be a community event, by the community, for the community,” he says.
Wanamaker hopes local schools, libraries, museums, service clubs and other community organizations will participate
“What we see is a series of community activities at various times and locations leading up to the actual anniversary on the 13th of November, so people have an opportunity to go to an activity at a time and a place that works for them, because not everybody would be able to dome to a single large event,” he says.
The U.S.S. Juneau public planning meetings are Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Mendenhall Valley Library. Friday’s meeting is noon to 1:30 pm at the Downtown Library.
