Please join the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association as we dedicate our new flagpole on Saturday, September 28th at 2:00 p.m. at the boathouse (1900 M Street SE).
The flagpole will be dedicated to the memory of Robert “Bob” Day Jr., a champion for Watersport access, recreation and competition on the Anacostia River—and visionary of the Anacostia Community Boathouse.
Over many decades, Bob developed and supported learn-to-row, learn-to-paddle and other educational programs for the at-large community. On the afternoon of September 28th, the boathouse will also be hosting a novice rowing scrimmage with brand new rowers from Capital Rowing, D.C. Strokes Rowing Club and Washington Rowing School. The facility will be bustling with activity as we dedicate the flagpole, just as Bob envisioned.
Diana Day and other members of Bob’s family will be in attendance.
Learn more about Bob Day and his contribution to the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association and to Capital Rowing Club.
