'All Hands Boatworks' offering free community rowing twice this week
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- With plenty of summer in the forecast, you have two opportunities to do a little boating this week and explore the Menomonee Valley free of charge. The organization "All Hands Boatworks" will provide the 12-foot wooden row boats built themselves by Milwaukee-area youth. Those with this non-profit say this is a perfect opportunity to "get out and go" during a summer with so many restrictions as to what we can and can't do. Executive director, Bill Nimke, says this free community rowing is all about forgetting about the world's problems and just taking in nature.
The free boat rides will be this Wednesday, between 11 am and 3 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. The "All Hands Boatworks" dock is located at the North Emmber Lane Public Boat Launch, two blocks of St. Paul Avenue and 13th Street. And don't worry, there will be a handful of other times available for boating in August as well. We have all the information about this organization and the services it provides, including internships, right here.
