Mike Parker: ‘Breakfast on the Boat’ is Saturday, April 13

No April foolin’! 

I have the official answer to a question I am asked repeatedly: “When are you doing the next ‘Breakfast on the Boat’?”

Saturday, April 13, will mark the Neuse Foundation’s first “Breakfast on the Boat” for 2019. The event is one of  the foundation’s smaller fundraisers to help raise money to operate and maintain the CSS Neuse II, the full-scale replica of the original CSS Ram Neuse.

In 2018, the Neuse II hosted more than 5,000 visitors during regular hours on Saturdays and during private showings by appointment. In 2018, volunteers from the foundation opened the replica gunboat 26 times to accommodate “private groups” as small as one and as large as 110.
