(LAKE JAMES) - The third annual Steuben County United Way Cardboard Regatta will be held on Saturday, September 6th at the Potawatomi Inn at Pokagon State Park. United Way Executive Director Bobbi Grill says the family friendly event will once again be the kickoff to their fall campaign.
Amateur or experienced builders are being invited to see who can design and build the best boat. Grill says there are several categories and participants are being encouraged this year to build their own boat. Cameron Memorial Community Hospital is the title sponsor. Cardboard is being provided free by Covington Box and can be picked up at Dry Dock Marine Center.
Boat registration is $25 with no charge for students. You can Bring Your Own Boat or contact Steuben County United Way at 665-6196 to order a pre-made boat.
