Such an amazing weekend with the Tall Ships coming to our area, the downtown having a festival and the PCYC's Green Island Race. I give gratitude for the organizers, volunteers and those who supported these events.
It was nice seeing out of town visitors walking through Waterworks Park. I saw a couple looking at the Erie Dearie memorial sign, which is the former transom of Erie Dearie Dan's boat, who was the developer of the Erie Dearie fishing lure. He was one of the charter boat captains who was responsible for bringing many people to our area for fishing in the 1970's. I have heard many snide remarks at some of the local meetings and from residents about the Erie Dearie sign and what value that it had at the Waterworks Park. Maybe this information will clarify it for you.
