City Seal

This week, Mayor Teri Johnston, the Key West City Commission, and the Old Island Restoration Foundation presented a commendation to Paul and Evalena Worthington for their dedication to preserving the Historic Key West Bight.

The couple has, for many years, operated the Schooner Wharf Bar. Paul recently passed away, and Evalena accepted the honor.

“The Worthington has inspired so many through their love of traditional classic boats,” reads the commendation. It notes that, over the years, the couple “never lost sight of the issues that mattered to the people within the local community.”

They “have worked diligently to ensure that the spirit of Key West remains true to its traditional culture; and every man, woman, and child, family, pirate, shopkeeper, visitor, Conch, and resident is welcome at the Schooner Wharf Bar.”

“I am so honored,” said Evalena. “We will continue the tradition of keeping the preservation of the Bight and Schooner Wharf Bar. See you there for a drink… or two!”
