Did you know July 22 has been proclaimed Big Day at the Lake Day by the NC Legislature? How cool is that?
You can be part of it by signing up to be a Boat Host, or a volunteer.
Big Day at the Lake, which has a 13-year record of helping Big Brother and Big Sisters of the Central Carolinas, needs Boat Hosts to take at-risk kids out on the lake for a morning of fun. Each “Little” comes with a “Big”—a built-in chaperone—AND a signed waiver.
The Big Day at the Lake organizers—all of them volunteers—expect as many as 200 kids, which means at least 120 Boat Hosts are needed July 22. We need you! This is a fun AND meaningful way to give back.
To register as a Boat Host (or to volunteer), go to: www.bigdayatthelake.com.
The day starts at 9 am at your dock, boat ramp, marina or a yacht club. Pair up with a friend or a group for even more fun. Big Day at the Lake has safe harbors organized (PYC, for example) as well as Boat Captains who can help with meeting up. Sorry, no jet skis for this event.
After a morning of sun and fun, join in the picnic lunch at Duke Energy Explorium. It’s amazing.
Dave Yochum can answer any and all questions about being a Boat Host. His number is 704-895-1335.
