Chappell Wilson, the man who organized the event, said that after the good response and attendance, there will almost certainly be a cruise next year. At the 2013 Rotary Auction, Wilson bid on some of the items, including a ride on Dr. Bostick’s boat.
“And then I got to thinking, ‘What am I going to do with a boat ride?’” said Wilson. “So I decided I’d just take the boat ride I bought there at the Rotary Auction and donate it to the military unit there in Fort Campbell for some of the soldiers.”
Dr. Bostick said he donated it to the Rotary Club for the 2013 Rotary Auction, and when Wilson bid on it and won it, Wilson contacted LTC Paul Taylor, squadron commander of the First Squadron, who handled it from there.
Taylor said the roughly two-hour cruise for wounded warriors and their spouses started off from the Lake Barkley Marina, went past the Lawrence Memorial Bridge over Lake Barkley and turned back.
