RED BANK: HOTCAKES FOR SEA SCOUTS

mbc-052710Ever have a yen to enjoy a Sunday morning breakfast in a historic setting with a spectacular view of the beautiful Navesink River? Come on down to the Monmouth Boat Club on March 6, when the clubhouse opens its doors to the public for an all-ages flapjacks-and-more fundraiser between the hours of 8 am and noon.

Sponsored by the Navesink Maritime Heritage Association (NMHA), the event is a benefit for Sea Scout Ship #5, the local chapter of the co-ed program of the Boy Scouts of America that teaches maritime skills to young people ages 14 to 21.

Volunteers will be preparing a hearty breakfast for you, your family and friends; cooked in the kitchen of the Boat Club building at 31 Union Street (foot of Wharf Avenue, adjacent to Marine Park). All proceeds go to the local Sea Scouts (under the direction of “Skipper” Gayle Horvath) and their ongoing programs of instruction in everything from sailing skills to working on board large, engine-powered vessels on the open sea, under command of an experienced captain.

Admission to the Sunday event is $10 per adult; or $7 for seniors (55 and over) and children under 7, with free Sunday parking at the park or in all municipal parking areas. To RSVP (recommended in order to gauge seating and supplies) or for more information, email ship5navesink@gmail.com.
