October 28, 2019 / Kelly Puente

Thursday marks the 52nd anniversary of the Queen Mary’s final voyage from Southampton to Long Beach, and in honor of the day, a nonprofit group called Queen Mary International will launch a fundraising campaign to help restore the iconic ship. Mary Rohrer, a community outreach coordinator for the nonprofit, said the group was called to action following a string of critical reports on the ship’s deteriorating condition. Rohrer said the city and the ship’s operator, Urban Commons, should step up and accept help from the nonprofit.
