Subject: Howard Steamboat Museum Chautauqua - May 20 & 21


For those who are not members and don't receive the "Bitts & Pieces" newsletter, this is a friendly reminder that our annual spring festival at the Howard Steamboat Museum & Mansion is the weekend of May 20 and 21. The theme this year is "Women at the Wheel" and pays tribute to lady steamboat captains and pilots. The program under the big tent will include re-enactments of Laura Howard (wife of Capt. Ed Howard,the builder of the mansion) hosting Capts. Callie French, Mary Greene, Blanche Leathers and Mary Miller. Numerous arts/crafts, food/beverage vendors, authors, etc., will set up booths on the grounds around the mansion and there will be an antique show/sale in the carriage house. Entertainment includes river musicians Barton and Para, "Ohio River Minstrels" John and Gwen Noftsger, The Big Muddy String Band, The River City Concert Band and, of course, our own popular and lovable organ grinder, Ted Guillaum, former DQ purser and steamboat buff extraordinaire. The museum is located in the 22 room Victorian mansion, completed in 1894, at 1101 East Market Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana, opposite the Jeffboat yards. The festival runs from 10 AM until 5 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Admission to festival and mansion is only $3.00 (regular museum admssion is $5) and children under 12 are free. For a complete schedule of entertainment times and other detailed information visit our website at www.steamboatmuseum.org and click on the four listings under CHAUTAUQUA in the sidebar. I'll be "on deck" in the steamboat exhibits on the second floor of the mansion both days. We look forward to seeing you! Thanks!
