07/10/2012: "Washington State Ferries Commemorative Magazine For 60-Year Celebration"
SEATTLE - Passengers aboard Washington State Ferries will find a new, limited-edition magazine, Compass, commemorating the end of the ferry system's 60th anniversary.
The keepsake publication, arriving just in time for the busy summer season, is packed with information about ferry-served destinations that will interest both tourists and locals alike, as well as some historical and insider information about the nation's largest ferry system.
The magazine is free to the public and was produced at no cost to Washington State Ferries. WSF cooperated with maritime industry publisher Philips Publishing Group to develop and create this publication as a final send-off to the year-long celebration of the state's first ferry run on June 1, 1951. It is available at all WSF terminals and vessels.
Washington State Ferries is the largest ferry system in the U.S., serving more than 22 million passengers each year aboard 22 ferries on 10 routes. For more information, visit WSF online.
