Presidential Yacht Potomac dry dock fund - Keeping History Alive

THE STORY:

The USS Potomac was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's floating white house from 1936 to 1945. President Roosevelt did great things for our country. He established Social Security and the Civilian Conservation Corps, and formed the United Nations. He saw the United States through the Great Depression and WWII. He funded programs that eradicated polio, and he repealed prohibition. We at the Potomac Association work to keep Roosevelt's legacy alive, to keep his presidential yacht up and running as a floating classroom and museum dedicated to preserving and teaching the importance and the impact of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt era. Over 2,000 students visit us a year, mostly 4th and 5th graders studying U.S. History. This year we were also host to kids from a firefighters burn camp, and from UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. Our fundraising efforts are for our upcoming dry dock, so that we can keep the USS Potomac afloat and continue to preserve and share this wonderful piece of U.S. history.
