Thanks to you and many others, Metro Parks is able to host the annual Holiday Cruise for individuals with special needs. For many, the event is a highlight that they look forward to all year. The event includes fellowship, a boat ride, pizza and dancing at the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum.
This truly is a community effort with volunteers from Day Island Yacht Club, Tacoma Yacht Club, Totem Yacht Club, Charles N. Curtis Sea Scouts and many others. It is a wonderful event helping our community members with special needs.
The Curtis crew, with 40 volunteers on the docks and 60+ in the museum and behind the scenes, assisted 125 people with disabilities board and disembark with the simple goal of safety on the docks. There were 29 boats involved in providing a boat cruise around Commencement Bay.
Mother Nature was good to us this year. The sun came out, temperatures were mild, the rain held off, and the wind was light.
We appreciate the support from the yacht clubs, the volunteers and all the donors and supporters who make this event possible.
