2023 July 4th Flotilla was a Success

The decorated boats, pontoons, and jet skis gathered at Frontier Resort.  One group headed north and the other headed south.   The docks and shoreline were lined with enthusiastic spectators while even the weather cooperated with clearing skies and only light winds.

Thank you to the volunteer leaders of each group of boats.

Thank you to all the creative families who decorated their boats to participate.
