2018 Boat4Vets was a success due to the hard work of our helpers who went into the market and obtained donations of gifts and money as well as putting everything together at the Idle Hour Yacht Club and everything looked great and the vets had a good time. Our boat Captains as usual stepped up and made the day for our Veterans a good one. Boat4Vets is growing and I am looking forward to next year so we can thank the veterans for their service to our country. Boat4Vets is 100% for our Veterans, now and forever. I am pleased and honored to be a part of this organization. A good time for our veterans is what Mike Shawl had in mind when he founded Boat 4 Vets ten years ago.
