The annual spring meeting of the James River Batteau Festival was held on Sunday, May 6th, 2018. The Tavern on the James in Scottsville, Virginia was the location. The site was very nice and the food outstanding.
Chairman Shaw called the meeting to order. Announcements about the sites and cleanups and the need for someone to be the ice vendor for the festival. Other people spoke about the Virginia Canals & Navigations Society publications and memberships. Rob Campbell from the James River Association spoke about a new batteau for the JRA to use in downtown lynchburg for public events. They are not sure if they will finish construction in time for this years batteau festival or not.
Old friends gathered around again and enjoyed the food and beverages and the Tavern.
