The sternwheeler Tanana Chief was the venue for the MHA Awards Banquet.  The water level in the Chena River was a bit low for a cruise but a good time was had by all.

The Tanana Chief recreates the dozens of historic sternwheelers that provided the vital transportation links for the miners during the Alaskan and Yukon gold rushes.

 

Welcome Aboard!  Brian and Nola Hill, Paul White, and Jim Somerville.


Lots of smiling faces onboard as the MHAers enjoy delicious dinner and drinks.
