Letter: Help grow the Antique Boat Show

To he editor:

This weekend is River City Days, and the third annual Antique Boat Show at Bay Point Park is looking for preserved or restored boats, motors or anything with some maritime history.

The show runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. near the boat launch.

It is nice to see a few boats in the water, too. Visitors enjoy seeing the talent of a true craftsman that bring down their homemade canoes, kayaks and boats.  

Please help me grow this event as I know that there are many wooden, fiberglass and aluminum boats sitting in garages in the area. Dust them off and bring them down on Saturday. This is not a judged event so bring down your items in any condition.

Items can be dropped off by 10 a.m. this Saturday. You can hang around to answer questions or just stop back at the end of the day to pick up your treasures.

See everyone at River City Days this weekend.
