Calvary Children's Home kids enjoy

Time to chat and relax on Lake Lanier.

3 boys flying high on float being pulled by a boat on Lake Lanier. Boat toys were the order of the day for the more than two dozen youngsters from Calvary Children’s Home who spent a sunny Saturday in August on Lake Lanier. Sponsored by America’s Boating Club Atlanta, the annual event gives these youth a chance to play at the lake.

Club members Tom and Susan Shirey provided their houseboat as a home base for socializing and lunch. Nearly 30 members of America’s Boating Club Atlanta showed up with pontoons, jet skis and powerboats. Other members brought oversized floats and a giant floating platform.

Calvary Children’s Home’s “Kids Day at the Lake” is a community program of America’s Boating Club Atlanta. It is one of two charities that the club regularly supports. The other is the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities.
