Since many of you were in attendance at the celebration of the 100th anniversary of our boathouse on Saturday, September 13th, you know that a great time was had by all.
This post, originally sent through our Yahoo Group listserv, is a special thanks from PBC president, Bob Price, to the many volunteers who worked so tirelessly over the preceding months to make the event such a grand success.
We can hardly wait to see what they come up with for the 140th anniversary of the Club next year!
I wanted to add my thanks to all who made our Centennial Celebration such a nice event! The House looked great, the turnout was impressive, and the party was a lot of fun. When you get a chance, please let the following people know they really put on a great show:
Â§ Camilla Durfee
Â§ Gib Durfee
Â§ Susan Trice
Â§ John Lavery
Â§ Pam Roberts
Â§ Katherine Hoffman
Â§ Barbara Corrigan
Â§ Robert Cooper
Â§ Catherine Souvain
More thanks go to Jake Higley and Sylvia Frayne for setting up the boat christenings. For those who were unable to witness it, the ceremony was great. It's a privilege that we have as a rowing community to name our boats after the special and important people in our sport, and to see new racing shells the David Challinor, the Cynthia Cole, and the Allen P. Rosenberg receive a proper welcome was truly a treat. Now let's make sure we win lots of races in them!
