This is Katy and Sam from Harlingen Texas.  Great great niece and nephew of the Statue's designer Norma McClory.  Photo by Susan Allen a great niece of Norma's.
The pictures below are of a model hand made by Glenn Folkerts and his wife June of the Shrine with the boats going around during the Blessing of the Fleet.  The boats actually move as they circle the island.  June is still very active with the Antique and Classic Boat Society - Mississippi Valley Chapter.
Many Thanks to June for sharing.
