Mohawk Maiden Cruises 50th Birthday of the “Caldwell Belle” Paddlewheeler

Congratulations to Mohawk Maiden Cruises on the 50th birthday of the “Caldwell Belle” paddlewheeler!! Built in Wisconsin, the Belle arrived in the Capital Region after a time in Louisiana, when Captain Bob and Marie Foster brought her here as a tour boat.

Senator Jim Tedisco was a really good sport and participated in the magic show, put on by Bob Yorburg after the ribbon cutting. Mike Bielkiewicz shared information about Hudson Crossing Park, Schuylerville, NY and the rich history of the region. Various teammates at Curtis Lumber Company were in attendance. Andrew Horn from Nelnet Renewable Energy, one of our tent sponsors at the Saratoga County Fair, also joined us for the event. And a local young man caught a 20lb carp right off the bulkhead near the Lock!! All in all a fun way to celebrate!

All 2023 ribbon cuttings of the Capital Region Chamber and its affiliates are sponsored by the Saratoga National Bank & Trust Company
