Ships festival offers funds to sail vessels

April 04, 2007 11:00 pm

The Tall-Masted Ships group is accepting donations for its Adventure Sail Scholarship Fund.

For $35 you can fund a child to sail on one of the ships, Lady Washington or Hawaiian Chieftain, during the May 1-6 ships celebration.

Adventure sails are three-hour cruises during which the children participate as members of an active ship's crew. They will help hoist sails, sing sea shanties and other activities.

Donations are accepted at Rural Human Services until April 27. Scholarship amounts will be based on the total number of applicants. Call Becky Barlow at 465-4881.
