Dear Panel Supporters - thank you so much and I hope i have thanked you all individually!  Just wanted  you to know that the ribbon cutting  See more

THE STORY:

Along the 5.5 mile  Cayuga Waterfront Trail, visitors embark on a self-guided tour of the natural and cultural history of Ithaca's waterfront through a series of educational interpretive panels. However, one integral story is missing: the rich history of competitive rowing on Cayuga's inlet. We have raised $6,000 towards our $10,000 goal for this panel.  YOU can help take us to the finish line and tell this important story by making a gift towards the final design, fabrication and installation of a panel that will recognize and explore Ithaca’s rowing legacy


Your gift to the Competitive Rowing Interpretive Panel will provide trail users with an illustrated display of the history of competitive rowing on Cayuga Lake, mounted atop an elegant sculptural stand. By supporting the design and installation of this rowing panel, you not only help commemorate the rich history of rowing in Ithaca, but also draw attention to the overlook.


Panel information, developed in collaboration with Cornell University, Ithaca College, and the Cascadilla Boat Club, includes a brief overview of rowing as both a participatory and spectator sport, highlighting local crew events and developments, milestones in Cornell University and Ithaca College crew history, and individuals from these two teams as well as the Cascadilla Boat Club who made names for themselves beyond Ithaca’s rowing sphere. View the panel draft here.


To date, we have raised $6,000 towards our $10,000 goal. With your support, we look forward to formally unveilling the panel on September 30th at Cornell's annual Schwartz Cup regatta!
