All Aboard for The Youth Partners Breakfast!

Save the Harbor's youth partners were welcomed aboard the Provincetown II for our
Youth Partners Breakfast on June 12th to learn about our planned 2012 summer program expansions.
Save the Harbor is back in action for the 2012 season, kicking off the summer with our annual Youth Partners Breakfast on the morning of June 12th, which took place aboard the Provincetown II docked right next to the World Trade Center. Save the Harbor's Bruce Berman and President Patty Foley were pleased to bring all our youth program partners together, and to announce this year's planned youth environmental education and recreation program expansion.

Harold Sparrow, the Senior Vice President of Operations at the YMCA of Greater Boston was on hand to speak about  Save the Harbor and its mission. "Save the Harbor and its recreational programs create lasting memories and give the youths and teens of Boston the opportunity to form lasting relationships," Sparrow said. "I'm proud to be a part of it."

At the suggestion of our youth partners we announced that our All Access Boston Harbor program will run 4 days a week in July and August, so we can "share the harbor" with even more youth and teens aboard our new boat, The Provincetown II. (Thanks to Mike Glasfeld, owner of Bay Stae Cruise Company for making this possible!

We are particularly excited to announce our newest program, 20 free "Changing Channel" boat tours of the Fort Point Channel, which will run from the Boston Children's Museum on City Water Taxi's Checkeboard Fleet. We can accommodate 25 people per trip. For more information, or to schedule a trip for your group, call us today at 617-451-2860 or email us at imailto:info@savetheharbor.org

Save the Harbor also announced that we will be holding the 2nd Annual Kids Beach Bash and Splash on Friday August 17 at the BCYF Curley Community Center in South Boston.

Save the Harbor's Bruce Berman greet our youth partners before boarding the Provincetown II for the annual Youth Partners Breakfast.
We will also be hosting or sponsoring 30 free events on the public beaches of Boston from Nahant to Nantasket. These events include concerts, family beach festivals, sand castle contests, and other fun activities that are expected to bring up to 500,000 families, teens, and youths from Boston and elsewhere to celebrate the region's public beaches.

Hope to see you out there on Boston Harbor enjoying its beaches, islands, and spectacular view-rain or shine!
