First Annual Boater Appreciation Day at Rivertowne
October 19th was an unseasonably cold day for the First Annual Boater Appreciation Day at Rivertowne. Those who braved the elements, however, were not disappointed.
Don Jones took the opportunity to introduce the Jennie Wade to the attendees. You can read all about her history by clicking on the tab at the top of the page. By spring, the Jennie Wade should be a place where boaters will be able to purchase ice and light refreshments and watch their boats being launched and retrieved from the deck of the sternwheeler. There is quite a bit of excitement to be had in watching all of the hustle and bustle in a marina on a great boating day.
Captain Don raffled off several shirts commemorating the Jennie Wade to attendees. Bill Manis and other members of the Rivertowne crew attended to the grill and ensured that no one went hungry. As this boating season comes to an end, we look forward to the spring and the changes to the marina that should make 2014 the best year yet.
