The Smith Mountain Lake Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society held their annual 4th of July Cruise on Thursday evening July 4th. The group gathered at Bridgewater Plaza at 7:30 pm and “Cruised” up the Roanoke River to mile marker 39 and returned to Bridgewater.
This year’s cruise was “re-named” as The Don Smith Memorial 4th of July Cruise in honor of long time chapter member Don Smith who recently passed away. Don’s son Randy traveled to the lake and piloted Don’s boat on the cruise in remembrance of his father.
There were 7 wooden boats participating and the group will continue this tradition on the 4th of July in the future as a celebration for our country. For further chapter information Contact Alan Frederick (540) 352-8653 or email [email protected]
