Default New River Book on the BONNIE BELLE

A surprise and delightful visitor to the museum this morning was Mrs. Bonnie Poore, former owner, along with her late husband, Capt. Lloyd Poore, of the excursion boat BONNIE BELLE. The sternwheeler, formerly the BORDER STAR, operated here at Jeffersonville for some years before moving upriver to Madison and beyond. Miss Bonnie brought us her just-off-the-press book, entitled Welcome Aboard... Meet the Captain. The 247 page softcover book is a wonderful history of the boat and there are lots of great photos too!

It was great to renew our friendship from those LONG AGO days when I was on the BELLE of LOUISVILLE in the 1970's and the BONNIE BELLE came to the Jeffersonville waterfront.

The HSM gift shop will be stocking this terrific new river book. Yvonne and I have also invited Miss Bonnie to have a book signing table at our annual spring Chautauqua, this year on May 19-20.
