Surrey Helps Keep Boat Afloat

Event Raises Funds for Canal Boat Expenses

Those who went to the Surrey in Potomac Village last Thursday were treated to wine, cheese and "Canal Cooler" punch. Twenty percent of all sales that evening were donated to help cover the cost of the Charles F. Mercer, the new boat in C&O Canal by Great Falls Tavern. Although the boat is docked in the canal, the Canal Boat Fund still needs to cover costs like insurance and the final installation of the wheelchair lift. See www.buildacanalboat.com.
