Boat Launch #2

t’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! No, it’s our very own home-made UFO!!

That’s … Unidentified FLOATING Object!

If you couldn’t make it to our last boat launch mark your calendars for this Sunday, September 18 starting at 2:00 1:00 PM. We will be launching the Alicia Marie for a second time out on the lake at the Pinchot Park Conewago Day Use Area. There will be cookies!

The story…

The Alicia Marie is a very special boat, which we completed and sail in memory of Alicia Daugherty whose idea it was to build the boat. It started with collecting plastic bottles. Any kind would do: milk bottles, juice bottles, soda bottles. Her and her best friend, Abby Householder collected the bottles and built the two pontoons out of 2x4s and chicken wire. They were able to successfully test one of the pontoons, however Alicia never got to see it completed.

Friends and family got together to finish the boat which led to a very successful boat launch August 21st at Pinchot Park. At least 60 people came out to see her boat sail, and it was an enormous success. We gave boat rides and had a wonderful picnic. We are planning another boat launch for those who couldn’t make it the last time, and you sure won’t want to miss it!
