Default Steamboat Bicentennial Celebration Update

We had a meeting at the museum yesterday to continue planning for the Steamboat Bicentennial Celebration on September 23-24-25. The meeting agenda opened with coffee and scrumptious Italian cream cake, thanks to Yvonne, to celebrate Curator Keith's 57th birthday! We were most pleased to welcome Travis Vasconcelos as a new member of the committee, which consists of Kenny Howe, Jim Reising, Kadie Engstrom, Chuck Parrish, Yvonne Knight (chair) and yours truly. Details are being worked out and it will be a fun weekend of steamboating activities, including a Friday evening reception at the museum, ribbon cutting ceremony for the new collections management facility, presentations on river history, music and a dinner cruise aboard the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE on Saturday evening.

Save the dates and watch for registration details to be announced on the museum website at Howard Steamboat Museum - Home Page

I am also serving on a committee for a special exhibition, "By the River's Edge" to be set up in downtown New Albany during the entire month of July. It will feature a traveling display on the history of steamboating as well as some unique riverboat artifacts from the local historical society and private collections. Details forthcoming!

Meanwhile, first things first! Don't forget that next weekend is the annual Chautauqua (spring festival) at the museum. River Ramblings will follow on July 16th.

Thanks and y'all come!
