Labor Day Boating at Lake Macbride—Mon, Sep 7, 1-4 pm

by Gerald Sorokin | Aug 28, 2015

Spend Labor Day Afternoon on a Boat at Lake Macbride State Park

Pontoon Boat

Labor Day is Monday, September 7. It's the unofficial last day of summer and Hillel is spending it at the lake! We're renting a pontoon boat and hanging out on the beach at Lake Macbride State Park.

Meet at Hillel at 1:00 pm and we'll drive to the park as a group. If you have a car, bring it. Otherwise, you can catch a ride with someone else. Or just meet us at the park. 

Directions from Hillel to the park are available here:

If you want to rent a kayak or pedal boat, you can do that, too.

Questions? E-mail Hillel or give us a call (319-338-0778).
