Default River Ramblings Comin' Round the Bend!

Mark your calendars for SATURDAY, JULY 27th for the ninth program in my "River Ramblings" educational lecture series at the Howard Steamboat Museum. The program will begin at 3:00 PM (EDT) which gives river buffs and buffettes the opportunity to ride the Str. BELLE of LOUISVILLE on her afternoon cruise and have plenty of time to drive over to the museum.

The presenter for this year's program will be my good friend of 41 years, Capt. Kevin Mullen, whose topic will be BELLE of LOUISVILLE: 28 YEARS OF MEMORIES and MAGICAL MOMENTS. For those who heard Capt. Kevin speak at last year's S&D meeting, this will not be exactly the same presentation. Kevin told me that, while driving home from Marietta, he thought of things he forgot and came up with a somewhat different talk; the one he wished he'd given! This will be a wonderful "prelude" to the upcoming festivities for the Belle's centennial celebration in 2014.

Admission to the program is $5 per person. We also are again having the "Riverboat Rummage Sale", featuring many used river books, steamboat tee shirts and river related trinkets that have been donated for the cause. All proceeds will benefit the museum operating fund. As usual, Judy Patsch will serve as "purser" and will, as usual, bring over a cargo of cookies!

Following the program, the fellowship continues with an informal group gathering at a Jeffersonville waterfront restaurant. ALL are welcome!

I look forward to seeing you when we again, "gather at the river" for this annual event.
