On the Bay: June 22, 2011

Written by Andrea Watson Friday, 24 June 2011 00:00

Each year right after Memorial Day, third grade children at local elementary schools build their own little sailboats and test them at one of the ponds down by the bay. This year was no different. But for the volunteers and onlookers who have watched this annual “introduction to sailing” year after year, this was a banner year. Every year this event gets better and better, and under the leadership of Mary Lu and Bill Palafox, this year was no exception. Spending just a few hours at Baxter Pond on Sunday, June 5 was yet another reminder of why Port Washington is such a fantastic community.

Now that Memorial Day is behind us, there is a ton of activity on the bay. This is what we have been waiting for all through the long, snowy, cold winter months. So get ready for a full season of great sailing, outdoor dinners, and long strolls along the shore as the sun is setting. Aren’t we lucky to live in a waterfront community?
