The Rondout Rower provides guidance to the HRMM’s Youthboat program. Each year since 2017 the Museum has introduced 12 or so youngsters to rowing on the Rondout Creek. Using the “John C Magnus” a historic Whitehall style boat rowers navigate either up to the Rondout Lighthouse or the Rail Road bridge (near Wilbur Avenue).
The program enriches young men and women in many ways. Here are some videos showing the youngsters at work. To DONATE to this wonderful cause, click on this link: https://www.crowdrise.com/support-youthboat/ Or go to the HRMM “donate” page: https://hrmm.z2systems.com/np/clients/hrmm/donation.jsp
