Schuylkill River Sojourn - the week long paddle on the Schuylkill arrives at Lock 60 on the Schuylkill Canal at about 3 PM for its overnight visit to Mont Clare. This is the twelveth year the sojourners will be visiting and we are all looking forward to a great time.
The Schuylkill Canal Association will be the host for the evening. Our river guests will enjoy a delicious dinner, program provided by the National Park Service and a comfortable setting for the night into the next day, Thursday, June 10.
We invite the public to join us for dinner & the program being held at St. Michael's Park, Jacobs St., Mont Clare. SCA is very excited about the program this year; joining us for the evening will be Cap't Hummel, a popular canal boat captain who will provide us all with his stories and song as he recollects his journeys along the Schuylkill Canal back in the day. This is a great treat; Richard Pawlings, History Alive, will re-enact this interesting character for all who attend. Definitely a must see program starting at 7 PM. There is no charge to attend the program. And plan to join us for dinner starting at 6 PM and served by Otterbein United Methodist Church. For $10 per person you will be served an all you can eat spaghetti and meatballs dinner with all the trimmings, salad & warm bread. Dessert, beverages and coffee will be available to provide you with a complete meal to enjoy. Some of the proceeds from the dinner do go directly back to Otterbein to fund their youth after-school programs and to SCA in helping us maintain and preserve the park.
