Despite strong winds and intermittent rain, HUDSON RIVER DAY 2012 at The Croton Yacht Club proceeded as scheduled. The chowder was great, the exhibits were wonderful, and real community outreach and fellowship were the order of the day.
We've been posting photos from this great event.
One of the nicest things about River Day at The Croton Yacht Club is the opportunity for less well known environmental, historical preservation, and community-based organizations to meet the public outside of their usual localities...Like Community Boat Works of the Hudson Valley. So What is Boat works? Peekskill's Boat Works is modeled after the South Bronx' Rocking the Boat, a similar program that started out with a teacher and a few students floating a boat in a school pool, to now becoming a 15 year old non profit organization that provides programs for more than 2,000 youth and community members every year.
