VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE - CRUISE RESCHEDULED TO SUNDAY, JULY 6TH.  Tickets are refundable if you cannot make it!   River Rose will be sending an email shortly regarding the date change. 

Please update your comments if you will be unable to attend.  Otherwise, we'll celebrate the 4th on the 6th!


IMPORTANT UPDATE - JUST SPOKE TO PETE @ RIVER ROSE.........   our cruise is going to the West Point fireworks and as of this moment, they are still on for this evening.

This very special July BF will be one huge extravaganza!  We’re going to celebrate the birth of our July babies and Independence Day on a Fireworks Cruise to nowhere along the Hudson River aboard the River Rose. 

River Rose:  Spoke with the Pete the 1st mate.  Not sure which direction we’ll travel at this point.  He’s working with the local municipalities along the river to determine who will be hosting fireworks on the 4th this year.  Pete did say he’ll have it figured out by the time we set sail.  As always, a sense of adventure and an even better sense of humor are required!

Your birthday is the most important day of your life!

To celebrate such a significant day, the Southern OC Singles will host a “Birthday Festivity” happy hour(s) / dinner every month to pay tribute, praise, commend and applaud those celebrating their birthday within that particular month.

A BF (birthday festivity) celebration will be held one Friday evening during each month beginning @ 6:30 p.m. The BF location will change each time so we can visit many different establishments within the county.

    I called RIver Rose to advise them I wouldn't be going so if you are looking for a ticket Donna, call them, I am sure that it won't be sold out for Sunday as several of us who were planning on Friday won't be going on Sunday.

    July 4, 2014

  • Donna

    So is the cruise the 4th or the 6th? I'm confused. If it's the 6th and you can't make it, let me know and I'll buy your ticket from you.
