On Tuesday, the last day of their visit, snow came to Denver and forced cancellation of the day’s events. The sailors were scheduled to visit two schools, Century Middle School in Thornton and Campus Middle School in Greenwood Village. Schools throughout Denver were closed due to the snow.
In the evening a reception had been scheduled at Balistreri Vineyards with about 80 persons signed up to attend. This event was also canceled due to the weather. Please check back as we are making plans for events to be held in spring 2016.
Chief of the Boat Brett Jackson participated in an interview on KOA Radio in the morning by phone. He provided some details about the state of the ship’s construction, and crew preparations to take the ship to sea.
