We are proud to have co-sponsored the Charleston Harbor Holiday Parade of Boats with the City of Charleston for over 17 years. We also owe a big thank you to Deb Brown and Karen Race for taking the photos under difficult conditions and doing the tabulations and scoring for the scoring sheets from the judges.
