While we were waiting on News from the Mikkelson Collection last week, we did a short story on Oreo our new crew member of the Woody Boater gang. Well we hit a nerve and the photos have started rolling in. To start off Woody Barker Week, we wanted to point out a fantastic effort that is being made by our fellow Woody Boaters at Antique Boat America in Clayton New York who raise money each year for “Golden Retrievers in Need”. They readily accept, boats, cars, trailers and memorabilia for donation and present 100% of the proceeds to this worthy organization.
The “donator” is also presented with a charitable tax receipt and folks readily step up and present items which will go to save dog’s lives ! I think most of us would happily trade places with the Golden comfortably situated in the rear of the Chris Craft Triple as shown above.
Many of the donated items will be sold at this year’s Clayton Boat Auction to be held on August 4th as a feature of the Antique Boat Museum’s , Annual Antique Boat Show.
Woody Boater asks that anyone wishing to consign and item should contact Peter Mellon at Antique Boat America: 1-800-675-4089.
You can find out more here at the Donation Website.
