And the Winner Is...
The Cast a Vote, Win a Boat votes are in and we have selected a winner via random drawing.
Congratulations to Christine Strelow!

Christine voted for us early, AND OFTEN! One lucky Sunday's vote was the winner. We want to thank Christine for her support and votes in the Partnership in Preservations contest. She is the new proud owner of a 13 foot Salisbury Point Skiff. We are putting the finishing touches on the boat right now. Even Christine notes that the boat is coming along beautifully.

But the story just keeps getting better...
In a great twist that once again demonstrates just how close we are in our family and community, Christine's father is Joe Bernard. Who is Joe Bernard? He is a proud volunteer of Lowell's Boat Shop. In his efforts to help the boat shop, he encouraged his daughter to Vote for us, which she did dutifully. As Christine said, "I had never expected to win the boat but was happy to vote for a place and community of people that my father so enjoys being a part of. A place that is deserving of some financial help." Well, Christine, you won! But now for the twist...What does Joe do to volunteer at the boat shop? Currently, he is helping us build the Cast A Vote, Win A Boat BOAT! Small world. Christine won the boat that her father is helping build! Keeping in the family spirit, we had Christine and her father Joe over just before Father's Day for a visit of her new boat.

Lowell's Boat Shop is thrilled to be part of such a great story. Joe walked Christine briefly through the building process, Christine was able to sit in her boat, and we were able to share the boat shop with truly some great friends. We thank you all for your votes and support. Once we get the boat in the water, we wish Christine, her husband and three kids, many, many years of happy rowing. We are certain that Joe will be available for all maintenance. (Just kidding!)


Thank You so much for Voting!
