Scottsville Mayor Nancy Gill (R) and Councilor Elizabeth Knotts (L) addressed the
crowd who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the canal packet boat recently
completed at Canal Basin Square (CBS). Funds for this project were provided
by the Town of Scottsville.
John Bowers, William Trout, and Tim Small (L to R) listened to the various presenters' speeches as they stood in front of the canal boat. Tim Small served as team leader of the Scottsville volunteers, who began building this packet boat in 2006, and John was a very active member of his team. Dr. Trout is a trustee of the Virginia Canals and Navigation Society and has faithfully supported this canal project with historical guidance and encouragement.
These attendees of the ribbon-cutting enjoyed sitting beside the batteau on display at CBS.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony featured live music, catering by the Luv'n Oven, and beer
from the James River Brewery.
