United Way Day Of Caring - May 2007

The United Way of Greater Portsmouth held a Day of Caring on May 28th. Six volunteers from Liberty International Underwriters arrived bright and early to hold a Field Day on the boat. At the end of the day, we had a clean ship to present to the public on Memorial Day. Our thanks go to Holly Peterson-Yakovakis, Li Wu, Marita Fletcher, Siva Cherukuri, Kathy Hebert and Tom Waterman.
