Saturday, Jan 10, your Michigan Chapter held another workshop, this time at the Algonac Maritime Museum. There were three speakers, lunch, and plenty of just talking. The best part was there were almost one hundred people in attendance!
It was a great turn out on a cold (but not snowy) day this year. Many thanks to the men from the museum who set up, helped keep everything running smoothly as we filled up the room, and cleaned up after the workshop was over. Your hard work was greatly appreciated.
We will be having another workshop in March, at the museum, so stay tuned and watch for your e-blasts so you don’t miss out on the fun.
We are not having a workshop in February because of our involvement with the Cobo Hall Boat show, and the Cottage and Lakefront Living Show. The Cobo show takes two weekends in February, and the Cottage and Lakefront Living Show, is the last weekend of February and the first of March.
I would love to see the kind of participation that we had at the workshop at the Cobo Boat Show. It is another venue to enjoy talking to other old boat lovers about that special boat, or just memories of boats gone by.
Please take a moment after you read this, to look at the workers schedule, and sign up to work at the Cobo Hall Boat Show. We need the kind of participation I saw at the workshop to keep us going to the show in Detroit. The MBIA asked us to come back because they received comments that we were missed last year, and I hope we can continue to make ourselves visible to the younger generations through venues like this. But we need your support to make it work.
