“Won’t ya let me take you on a Tree Cruise? Oo-ee, oo-ee, baby!”
We all enjoyed a fun, relaxing and interesting afternoon on our tree cruise with Amelia River Cruises on April 23 in celebration of Earth Day and Arbor Day. ATC thanks all who contributed to the success of our fundraiser. We netted $3300 from a relatively uncomplicated fundraiser. Thank you!!
We thank all who purchased tickets and all who attended. We definitely enjoyed your company. We thank Kevin McCarthy of Amelia River Cruises and Pajama Dave for hosting our event and providing the entertaining and interesting narration. Like last year, musicians Chris Occhuizzo, Steve Mason, Michael Howerton, and Alain le Lait contributed greatly, and we love Michael Howerton’s lyrics to “Tree Cruise.” The young dancers from Royal Amelia Dancers charmed us all as they welcomed us with leis for the cruise. Thanks to FPU for its generous donation and to Jersey Mike’s and BuyGo for their support. Thanks to the businesses, organizations and artists who contributed to our raffle: Barzin, Kayak Amelia, Dome Healing Center, Amelia Community Theater, Steve Mason, Mary Libby, Deborah Kessler and Amy Baker. And thanks to those who took photos of the event, Sherry Roberteen Carter, John Baker, Tom Raymond, Terri Dean and Diana Herman.
