Can you believe it! Our Ferry Ambassador program is one year old! Little did we know when we kicked off this program we would receive so much more than we would give. Making new friends, meeting interesting people from all over the world and feeling that you personally contributed to KEEPING the ferry are worth every minute. So take a minute to congratulate the inaugural class when you see them on the water. More celebration to follow of this important achievement for OUR ferry.
