Join Amelia River Cruises as they celebrate the culmination of the fund-raising campaign to acquire a 6-foot bronze Civilian Conservation Worker Statue for Fort Clinch State Park.

Fort Clinch State Park was one of more than 800 parks nationwide that benefited from their work. Jim McCannell will give a short presentation on the importance of the CCC in our nation’s history especially in developing our beautiful Fort Clinch State Park and announce the timetable for the statue installation. The all inclusive cruise includes entertainment by guitarist and vocalist Richard Stratton, with light refreshments provided by The Salty Pelican and soft drinks/water. Individuals may BYOB if so desired.
