To the Editor:
On Sunday, October 7, my husband Clint and I had the pleasure of taking a tour of Tabor Boy at its harbor mooring. John Quirk, Tabor Academy’s new Headmaster, had invited Marion residents to go aboard to see this magnificent schooner firsthand. Under the guidance of Captain James Greil and his friendly, competent student sailors, we were able to examine the entire vessel.
We have the pleasure of seeing Tabor Boy sail past our home most afternoons during the school year and seeing her up close was a further experience. Mr. Quirk plans on having more tours for Marion residents in the future. We highly recommend this fun family event and thank Mr. Quirk for sharing this Marion treasure with us.
Judy and Clint Brown
