This money will go a long way in helping us service the debt we've taken to pay for these repairs and to purchase new boats! Thank you!  See more

THE STORY:

The harsh winter of 2010-2011 wreaked havoc on our equipment. Our only 8-person boats were destroyed this winter, as snow piled up upon the boats and the trailer, more and more pressure was exerted on the boats' bows. Finally, the bows snapped in half under this pressure. We have opted to purchase a new 8 and refurbish one of the damaged boats. This cost us roughly $10,000 and we are hoping to recoup some of this through this fundraising project. Please, support us so that we may return to a better fiscal position and so we can begin to focus our efforts on expanding our programs.

The rowing club looks to serve and support minority, at-risk youth, seniors, and returning veterans injured by war. We train rowers and aspiring rowers to reach their highest capabilities, and to experience the inspiring beauty of the Hudson River. We hope to raise funds for and to build a new Haverstraw Community Boathouse in the Village, which will also serve as a community facility and meeting place for community members. We believe the boathouse can be a centerpiece for the revitilization of downtown Haverstraw. It is our opinion that by inspiring citizens to achieve great things, we can foster a vibrant local economy and new sense of pride for the community.

"It's a great art, rowing. It's the finest art there is. It's a symphony of motion. And when you're rowing well, why, it's nearly perfection. You're touching the divine. It touches the you of you, which is your soul." -- George Pocock

We are a designated 501(c)-3 organization. We appreciate your support.
