New England Aquarium location for July Meeting

On Thursday, July 18, Skal Boston has a clambake luncheon under the tent at the New England Aquarium on Central Wharf.  Debra Borgwardt, Director of Sales welcomed our members and presented the Skal Toast.

The afternoon started with an outside cocktail reception with open bar and passed hors d’oeu’vres.  The location offered our members and guests a wonderful view of the harbor on a beautiful summer day with many boats going by.
