Service, Education and Boating Fun

Highlight Lake Murray's July and August Activities

July and August were filled with fun on the water for our members. The highlight of these two busy summer months was our annual Thornwell Day on the Lake, an annual event at which we host children of all ages from the Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina, to a day at the lake filled with water activities. Our members volunteered their time, boats and water toys to entertain the group this year. And, let's not forget those who manned the grill to fix those burgers and hot dogs!

Beyond our civic service, we enjoyed Flotilla Fridays, a cruise on Lake Hartwell, our "Log Jam Raft Up #2" and a small boat cruise up the lake to Big Man's. Would you believe, over two months, we sponsored eight events at which 80 boat and 160 members participated!

But, let's not forget about education efforts. P/C Jerry Wise kept his students excited enough to complete their Piloting course during the middle of the summer! He proudly sent us some photos of the "six new expert boaters." The eight-week course covered coastal navigation using charts and electronics all the way from pencil and paper to sophisticated radar and multifunction chart plotters.
