This Sunday marked the 12th year of Burlington Sunrise Rotary supporting the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival.  As usual, we supplied dock volunteers to assist boaters and ran our food table to raise funds for Rotary charities.
Steve Gentile, once again, led the Morgan Stanley and Rotary volunteers on the dock, making sure boats left and arrived on time throughout the day.
After a one year hiatus, Alison Davis returned as our leader for the food table, helping to raise ~$900 for Rotary Charities, which include books for VT kids in need (Imagination Library) and Kenyan safe water.
THANK YOU, Alison and Steve, for your tireless leadership.  Here are some fun pictures from the Burlington waterfront:
Alison, Eric, Andy, Dann's Daughter & Dann brewing coffee for the food table:
Steve "Gun Show" Gentile organizing an insane amount of boaters:
Andy on the docks, in between boat launches.
UVM mascot Rally and Eric, shilling bagels while Ken "T-Bone" Puzey's actually works.  Rally would later get overly frisky and was asked to leave the tent.  (joke).
T-Bone, Bobby and Diana selling coffee and bagels very early in the morning.
Steve "Gun Show" Gentile about to take names, kick some a** and help raise funds for cancer research.
K-Train asking Gun Show if he can transfer from the Food Table to the Docks.  K-Train was denied due inappropriate behavior.
Alison and the Rotary Food Table.  "COFFEE HELPS YOU ROW FASTER!" was one of many winning T-Bone catch phrases.  I think that is President Eric Hanson squatting for the photo.
K-Train showing off the latest in coffee stand fashions.  Do NOT give him any sass!!!
Thank you to everyone who made this year's event another rousing success!!!
