AL'iDN EV m 1JNG i IMMiRAPH MONDAY, JULY 22,1983 ifoating Colony Entertains Guests at Harbor Point Party \ a, * - t, J . a/ . ...... . .-^- ' .^^^^^^fr^^^^nni j ^ j ^^jg^^ ^g^ - -. ^iiiriiiiniuirriTiiiiiVir^*""*'-^''^^ Itteitd Dinner ttttotttss Alftefjg the countless iiiim- beir 6l HV6t lovers ate several HUrtdferf Jtieftibets of the Har- 001-, Point ¥acht dub at West Alteflt f 6fr many of these, their boats We theft summer homes -»at least on' weekends. This col^y of skippers had a dltlttet' dahce Saturday night, one of teveml such events given dUftag the season. Members "arid their guests, some 200 persdris, gathered in the club- housfc which' is a renovated packet boat tied to pilings in the tfver. The boat Was called "The, tiasa" when it was oxvned by -the government and hauled freight on the Missis- Slppi, It 'has been charmingly redecorated with tile floors, paneled ;\valls, and broad expanses of ^indows giving a lovely viewjbf the river. A lounge, dancing room, and a bar are on the lower deck. The ; jipper deck serves as the dining room, where dinner is served several nights a week. The lounge is furnished with chairs, couches and coffee tables,Jand the dancing room is pretty well cleared for its intended function. The latter Is lighted by a boat wheel chandelier. The wheel was taken from the packet boat "The Daniel Boone." The decorating was done by Mrs. Spencer Merrill who with her husband, Major Merrill (USA ret.), operates the yacht club. They owned a barge line on the Mississippi for many years and after selling it "found themselves in the pleasure boat business" in 1945. Many Altonians are active members of the club, which is largely made up of St. Louis area people. While the commodore, L. R. Bannister, Is from St. Louis County, the next two In command are Altonians. Courtney Budd is vice commodore, and Judge I. H. Streeper serves as rear commodore. Officers are elected once a year at a business meeting. Many members of the club spend weekends on their boats which have all the comforts of home. Some, we are told, never leave the harbor. Charlotte Peters, St. Louis television personality, who was a guest of friends Saturday evening and who had been boating on the river all day, said "these people really know how to live. This is the way to contentment." We agree. Born to: Mr.' and Mrs. Harry Hargrave, 3 S. Olive St., Hartford, a son, 8 pounds, 1 ounce, 4:22 a.m. today, Wood River Township Hospital. Lt. A. R.
