CUSH will host a celebration of the "Boot the Barge" campaign at The Engine Room, on Wednesday, March 5 from 5:00-6:00. The event will honor the barge and all those who have worked to organize and fund its removal from the Mystic River where its deteriorating condition has become a hazard to river enjoyment and safety. The barge is scheduled for removal as soon as weather and ice conditions permit. The campaign is still short of its funding goal and anyone interested in helping the effort is invited to join the celebration. The Engine Room at 14 Holmes Street is Mystic's newest dining establishment and the site, like the barge, has a rich historical connection with the Mystic River community and culture. Those wishing to stay after the CUSH event for dinner at The Engine Room are welcomed. Reservations are suggested.
