Local BoatUS members will gather July 28 at the River Roast Social House in Chicago for a member appreciation event to celebrate the organization’s 50th year.

It was 50 years ago that BoatUS got its start as the result of one man’s desire to make recreational boating better for boaters, sailors and anglers.

To celebrate the milestone, the nation’s largest recreational boat owner advocacy, services and safety organization announced the fourth in a series of local celebrations to say thanks to its more than half-million members.

A BoatUS 50th Anniversary Member Appreciation Event will be held July 28 at the River Roast Social House, 315 N. LaSalle St., in Chicago.

Members and friends of the association are invited to stop by between 6 and 9 p.m. BoatUS president Margaret Bonds Podlich will host the informal celebration with hors d’oeuvres and prizes, including a Star Clippers cruise for two. TowBoatUS captains also will attend.

“It’s a way to gather and thank our BoatUS members for their continued support over the years, and to get with other boaters to talk boating,” Podlich said in a statement.
