Pyrates give to others both on land and sea

Published on December 05, 2018 with No Comments

The Blackwater Pyrates of Milton are equally at home on land or sea, but good deeds by this organization reached far beyond the banks of the Blackwater River.

Approximately 20 Pyrates showed up on Thanksgiving Day at the Guy Thompson Community Center and served the seniors a Thanksgiving feast.

“It was amazing to see this organization come out and give their time to brighten the Thanksgiving holiday for our seniors in Milton,” said Milton Parks and Recreation Director John Norton. “They willingly gave time from their own families. It was amazing to watch this organization in action.”

The Pyrates not only helped in the final preparations of the meal, but they also served drinks and food.

This local civic organization is mostly known for water based activities like its Blackwater River Clean-up efforts and the Great Milltown Duck Race each Fourth of July, but they are doing so much more in the local community.

You may even see them as bell ringers for the Salvation Army during the holiday time leading up to Christmas at a local store front.

“The Pyrates and all of their assistance was truly overwhelming,” said Joe Paschal, the Milton Senior Program Director. “They came out on Thanksgiving Day and jumped right into action. They truly made the event a huge success.”
