MAILBOAT OUTING

We had a nice turnout for the fun and interesting Mailboat Outing in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The Bethlehem crew shown here at the Historic Riviera Ballroom went on a several hour cruise about 26 miles around Geneva Lake on the U. S. Mailboat Walworth. We listened to the histories and celebrities associated with the lakeshore mansions and watched Mail Jumpers Molli and Katie jump from the boat on to piers to deliver mail to the mansions and then jump back on – the boat doesn’t stop or hardly slow down. Sometimes there were people in costumes waiting on the pier to greet and interact with the Mail Jumpers. After the cruise we had lunch at a nearby restaurant.
