EYC was privileged to participate in thiswonderful celebration of Ephraim’s150
birthday. Through the efforts of many EYC members, the Clubsponsored a traditional “Venetian Night” parade of exquisitely decorated boats, inan early evening parade around EphraimHarbor. Despite an early evening storm,complete with rain, thunder and lighting,to each boat’s credit, they hung in thereand put on a good show! The Club produced eight boats for the parade.Later I learned that this was the most boats of several parades held in the area.Our hats are off to those brave skippers,
