A tour-guide for 22 years at the Marine Museum of the Great Lakes in Kingston, Toomey will share his Alexander Henry experiences, which at one time served as a former Canadian Coast Guard vessel on the Great Lakes.
His world-wide experiences as an ice pilot in both Arctic and Antarctica for many years will entertain both the assembled seafarers and non-mariners at the 2nd annual Lakehead Transportation Museum Society fundraising dinner.
The fundraising dinner was held on Friday Feb. 2 at the Prince Arthur Hotel.
