Raft-up —          Ocean Pines Paddle Tennis members celebrated July 4th weekend with their first raft-up of the summer.
John Henglein and Tom Hershey were captains of this excursion. The group included John and Carolyn Henglein, Tom and
Beth Hershey, Ron and Barbara Ferger, Jim and June Freeman, Adrienne Reilley, Mike and Mary Henderson, Russ and Anita
Roberts, and Bill and Mary Wentworth. With a clear sky and cool breeze, the weather was perfect.
    Several additional local boats joined the raft- up festivities with everyone boarding each other’s boats and sampling an
array of food and beverages. The evening ended with Dave Lloyd playing “God Bless America” while the boaters paid tribute
by singing along.
