Church picnic and a cruise aboard the Maiden Voyage on Aug. 21, 2011. Members met in the church basement for a potluck and chicken dinner after second service. Great food, as usual. After dinner 27 people boarded the Maiden Voyage at the McGregor marina for a 2 1/2 hour cruise. Captain Bob provided us with an interesting and scenic cruise. He told stories of some bits of history of the McGregor and Marquette area and the Mississippi. I even think a lot of the stories were true. At any rate, the cruise was really nice and very entertaining. The GOOD LORD provided us with beautiful weather. We did have a small shower at one point, but it didn't last long at all and certainly didn't dampen the spirits of anyone on board.
