* NEWS UPDATE on Adams Class Museum, January 17, 2017

From the JHNSA web site:
The USS Charles F. Adams (DDG-2) has an opportunity to be relocated from the Navy's holding pen to Rhoads Industries for dry dock and transfer repairs in Philadelphia on March 7th! Rhoads will ready and paint the ship for her tow to Jacksonville. We are not able to release a tow date just yet and have a few more hurdles to resolve before officially announcing she is on her way home, but rest assured we will let you know as soon as the information becomes available.

The USS ADAMS Museum crew and supporters continue to work with the City of Jacksonville and The Stellar Group to finalize the plans and design for the future home of the USS ADAMS Museum at the historic Shipyards property in Downtown Jacksonville. The Pier has been inspected, the river water and bottom have been inspected and measured and the final agency permits and authorizations to begin construction are nearly complete. In the meantime, we have launched our memorial brick fundraising campaign where your support can be etched in brick forever and for all to see! Stay tuned for the next update! Go to the JHNSA web site for full details!

"SAVE THE ADAMS" project update - January 7, 2017

The following statement was sent out to over 100 JHNSA members, so I think it's safe to post it here.

Our next board meeting is 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at H&K. We received word that the Army Corps of Engineers will issue us our permit for the pier work and we received more good financial news. We will update you at the meeting. March 7 (dry dock) is less than 60 days away and we have more work to do to be ready. dkb

"SAVE THE ADAMS" project update - December 21, 2016

We now have a project update from the JHNSA. Following are excerpts from a message sent from JHNSA President Dan Bean to ACVA directors.

The ship repair facility has 12 Perry Class Frigates they are preparing for Poland, hence we were moved to the back of the line. If there are delays with the Perry Class project, we will be delayed too. "We are letting the public know that March 7, 2017 is our dry dock date.

You can also share that we are moving forward on the pier preparations

More funds will be needed after her arrival for us to build her out the way we hope, so please keep asking. For now, we believe we can establish top-side tours within six weeks of her arrival. Then we focus on the berthing compartment and go from there.

Thanks. dkb

Ok, that's it from me. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas - and go easy with the New Year's celebrations. Believe it or not, you DO NOT have to have alcohol in your blood to have a good time.

Jim Bosworth,
