Corn Hill Navigation, operators of the Sam Patch and Mary Jemison, recently published a 2011 year in review and offered a thank you to all supporters and neighbors. Here is a look back at what Corn Hill Navigatio accomplished in 2011:
- 20th anniversary as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, including the dedication of Curtis Point in Genesee Valley Park
- Hosted more than 20,000 passengers this year, and welcomed a quarter-millionth passenger on board
- Expanded their education programs to welcome aboard every 4th grader from the Rochester City School District
- Introduced area residents and visitors from all over the world to the joys of cruising on the legendary Erie Canal
- Fostered waterfront renaissances at Corn Hill Landing, Schoen Place, and most recently Brooks Landing
A Thanks To All
Whether you attended their anniversary celebrations, contributed to ROC the Day, made a tax deductible donation, purchased tickets or a Navigation Pass, booked a charter, volunteered for a school program, or simply waved to our boats from the tow path, Corn Hill Navigation thanks you for your loyalty and support in 2011, and they look forward to seeing you in 2012!
They also recognized the staff, crew, and volunteers who dedicated themselves to Corn Hill Navigation this season.
Welcome New Chair, Brett Costello
Daryl C. DuLong also left the Chair position at the end of 2011, but enthusiastically welcomed the incoming Chair, Brett Costello.
