Re-Christening the USS Redstan

In the 1950s, George “Red” Lynde and Stan Pickett, inspired by the movie¬†Kon-Tiki,¬†set out to build their very own pontoon boat. For many years, this boat sat outside the museum for people to enjoy. This past winter, thanks to funds donated by the Pickett family, the Redstan underwent repairs and renovation. The museum will be hosting a short ceremony unveiling the hard work of volunteers and a new interpretive sign telling Red and Stan’s story.

Lego Boat Building Contest

We invite kids 17 & under to create a boat out of Legos and bring it to family day for this contest. Creations will be on display throughout the event and a winner will be chosen by a panel of Legacy of the Lakes Board Members. The winner will be furnished with a prize from the museum.

Thank you to our event sponsors. Without them, this event would not be possible. Please give them your patronage!
