Please join us for our second festive fundraising cruise on the Detroit River on Saturday, July 17th from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm aboard the MV Friendship. The cruise will also serve as an official reunion event for former Boblo crew members and employees.
On this celebratory cruise down the Detroit River, you are invited to bring memorabilia, share your fond memories and reminisce about America’s oldest surviving passenger steamer as you cruise past the beloved Bob-Lo boats, Columbia and Ste. Claire.
During the cruise, you will feast on complimentary pizza delivered by the J.W. Wescott II mailboat while toasting the slow steady progress in restoring the Columbia to its former glory.
The Friendship will depart from the dock behind the Portofino Restaurant at 3455 Biddle Avenue, Wyandotte. Boarding begins at 1:00 pm. Suggested donation is $35 per person.
