Morgan City Proclaimed Coast Guard City
Thursday, August 29, 2002
The Coast Guard is scheduled to proclaim Morgan City a “Coast Guard City” during a public ceremony at the Morgan City Municipal Auditorium, August 31 at noon. The Coast Guard City designation recognizes cities that have made outstanding efforts to acknowledge the contributions of local Coast Guard men and women, and that set the standard for embracing these people and their families into the community. It’s awarded only to those communities that demonstrated a long-standing and enduring relationship with, and commitment to, members of the Coast Guard and their families. Only three other cities have earned this honor: Grand Haven, Mich.; Eureka, Calif.; and Mobile, Ala.
