Members and guests enjoyed the passing of the annual Old Glory Boat parade wherein 40 boats decorated
in their best patriotic themes cruised about the harbor. Face painters were on hand for all the children.

The day continued on with over 1000 breakfasts and 700 lunches being served by dozens of volunteers to the membership
and general public with terrific music, sno-cones, popcorn, cocktails, and great raffle prizes.
Grand prize winners of a 42” flat screen TV donated it to “Patriots & Paws” a local non-profit organization for
returning veterans.

What a great 4th of July!
