Korean War veteran and historian Marshall Davis (pictured) took the lead as tour guide for the Alameda Naval Air and USS Hornet museums that hosted a fundraising event in honor
of the Doolittle Raid, which left from Alameda on April 1, 1942.
The "Doolittle Walk" featured visits to the place Jimmy Doolittle touched down on the runways just past the flight tower; Pier 2 where the USS Hornet was loaded with 16 B-25 bombers; and today’s USS Hornet which is technically a newer craft than the one that set out on the Doolittle Raid to bomb Tokyo.
The Rotary Club of Alameda, the East Bay Regional Park District and the Alameda Recreation and Park Department invite you to bring the entire family to this year’s Splash into Spring Egg Scramble.
This free "egg-citing" event will take place this Saturday, March 28, at the Crab Cove Picnic Area at Robert Crown Memorial State Beach, 1252 McKay Ave. Free parking is available at the Crown Beach parking lot at Otis and Westline drives. Pre-registration is not necessary.
