“The Lorena Sternwheeler is going to have a wonderful season this year. We will kick off July second and we will have public rides, and we also have twilight cruises. We unfortunately will not be offering lunch or dinner cruises this year, with food. However we will keep the lunch cruises, those times set, so if you have a schedule those lunch cruises will just turn into public rides.”
