MONTROSE, N.Y. -- The Cortlandt Yacht Club and Ossining Elks Club Lodge 1486, will host a group of Wounded Warriors, Gold Star Families, Purple Heart Recipients and veterans in a day of recognition for their services on Saturday, July 23.
Following a meet and greet at the Cortlandt Yacht Club starting at 9 a.m. host boats, with honored guests onboard, will cruise north through the Hudson Highlands in a flotilla formation.
“We strongly encourage other boat and yacht clubs to join us on the Hudson River on Saturday July 23, 2016. It would be their way of showing their gratitude and support,” organizer Brian Young said. “It would be a wonderful gesture if residents along the Hudson Highland communities on both sides of the Hudson River, would find a location along the Hudson River shoreline and show their support as the flotilla passes by.”
The tentative schedule for the Flotilla will be to depart from the Cortlandt Yacht Club at 11 a.m. and proceed in accordance with the following schedule:
- Verplank Steamboat Dock – 11:15 to 11:30 a.m.
- Peekskill Yacht Club – 11:40 to 11:55 a.m.
- Highland Falls – 12 to 12:15 p.m.
- Garrison Yacht Club – 12:10 to 12:25 p.m.
- West Point – 12:20 to 12:35 p.m.
- Cold Spring – 12:35 to 12:50 p.m.
