Hoboken Boathouse needs volunteers
Remember the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse that opened up last week?
Here’s a message to Hoboken residents from HCCB President David Downs:
Come down on Wednesday, August 13th!
“Thank you for your continuing support of the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse (HCCB).
In case you have not heard, we have good news! Last Wednesday the City of Hoboken opened the Maxwell Place Boathouse, and has asked the HCCB to run a free kayaking program in the Cove.
We have been busy the past few days. We have borrowed 10 boats from the Downtown Boathouse in Manhattan. We have also got our life jackets from storage, and a limited supply of paddles. We need a few more things before we can start, but we hope to get going soon.
This coming Wednesday, August 13 we will be offering free classes at the Maxwell House Boathouse for those who want to volunteer. Please stop by anytime between 6-8PM, to have a look around, get a basic introduction, or even partake in a kayak safety class out on the water. All are welcome. Bring a change of clothes if you are going for a paddle – you will get wet.
The on-water class will be canceled if the weather is doubtful (411 note: weather looks ok at this point!) The on-land class will go, as long as it is not raining hard. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
