Please join two of Treasure Island’s most cherished organizations, the Treasure Island Museum (TIM) and Treasure Island Yacht Club (TIYC), for an evening of discovery with our nearby friends.
As you already know, Treasure Island is soon to begin redevelopment, and this means that some of the anchor organizations will move to new locations. Before that happens, let’s have a party! Both organizations have full schedules. Saturday September 12th is the best date both groups have before colder weather sets in.
We’ll start with “Behind the Scenes” at the Treasure Island Museum: Please join our Collections Manager, Brianna Jilson, when she takes us into the archives to see some of the highlights from our collection.
TIYC will open the bar with chips and snacks while the chef toils over a hot grill to serve your choice of Prime Rib Steaks, Salmon Steaks, or Giant Portobello Mushrooms with several salads and sides followed by coffee and dessert. $20pp.
After coffee and dessert, TIM board president, Walt Bilofsky, will aim his telescope toward the skies in the tradition of San Francisco’s own Sidewalk Astronomers in a classic Star Party. Learn what the Mobjects are, see the rings of Saturn and Mountains on the Moon…weather permitting.
4pm TIYC bar opens with snacks.
5pm TIM Behind-the-Scenes tour of the Museum.
6pm TIYC Steak Dinner.
7pm TIYC coffee and dessert.
8pm TIYC short walking tour of the cove to the new TIYC location.
9pm TIM Star Party – discover the stars…until whenever.
Please enter your entree choice and club affiliation in the columns provided.

Meaning of the Veterans Remembered Flag:
– The Flag depicts the founding of our nation by the thirteen stars that emanate from the hoist to the large red star that represents our Nation and the five branches of our country’s military that defend her.
– The white star indicates the Veteran’s dedication to service.
– The blue star honors all who serve in the military in the past, present, and future.
– The gold star memorializes those who fell defending our Nation.
– The green field represents the hallowed ground where all rest eternally.
About Memorial Day
Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.
