Mottville Boat Race for Charity will be Aug. 10


To the editor:

We hope you can join us for the third annual Mottville Boat Race for Charity. This year’s event will be held at 10 a.m. on Aug. 10 in the Mottville Creek near the playground. Old fashioned toy wooden boats race down the creek and the first three boats to finish in both the adult and children categories win a prize. Boat tickets may be purchased at the Mottville Emporium and post office. All of the proceeds will again be donated to the National Eczema Association, the Skaneateles Ecumenical Food Pantry and the Skaneateles Lake Association. This year’s race will be in memory of Bill Aaron, Stephanie Davis, Karen Foltz and John Quinzi. They each contributed so much to our community in their own special way.

Over the past two years we have raised over $3,200 for the same three charities. If you are interested in making a donation or would like more information please contact Erica and Ken Byrne at 685-2040 or mail donations to Erica and Ken Byrne at 850 Franklin St., Skaneateles NY 13152. Please make checks payable to Erica and Ken Byrne. We are also accepting prize donations for the top three winning boats winning in both the adult and children categories. Thank you very much for your consideration of a donation to these three charities and we hope you can join us for a morning filled with old fashioned fun!

Thank you very much to our 2012 sponsors!
