Default River Ramblings Program at Howard Museum

It's summertime on the river and the calliope is calling! Just a friendly reminder that the fourth offering in my "River Ramblings" program series at the Howard Steamboat Museum will be on Saturday, June 28th when Rock Island steamboat buffette extraordinaire Judy Patsch will be presenting Rise and Shine for the Streckfus Line - A Journey on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers with an Excursion Steamboating Dynasty. The program begins at 3:00 PM (EDT) in the carriage house behind the mansion. Although we have hopes and dreams for the 1880's building, it is NOT yet restored or air conditioned, so please dress comfortably. Admission is a donation of $5 per person and all proceeds benefit the museum's operating fund.

I schedule these programs at 3:00 for the benefit of those who wish to ride the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE on her afternoon cruise (12-2) and have plenty of time to drive over to the museum. For BELLE boarding time and fare information go to Steamboat Belle of Louisville - Excursions, Dance Cruises, Dinner Cruises, Charters, Weddings on the Ohio River or call 502-574-2992.

For further information, including driving directions, etc., visit the museum website at Howard Steamboat Museum - Home Page or call 812-283-3728. The toll free number is 888-472-0606. Y'all come!
