This past Saturday provided perfect conditions for racing cardboard boats! Thanks to the Aurora Fire Department, the AquaERV safely made it to Mastadon Lake for the Fox Valley United Way “What Floats Your Cardboard Boat” Race. Longfellow the Whale made the trip to Aurora to support the work of the ARCGC and to promote the importance of water safety for all the race participants. Life jackets on, everyone! The three operators of the AquaERV, Steven Strang, Emily Cull and Katie Darin had impressive paddling skills and secured a third place finish. Once everyone was safely on shore, Longfellow took a much deserved rest. Visit the blog tomorrow afternoon for a video of the AquaERV’s voyage!
