This past weekend, Lafayette Crew had our usual end of the year banquet. However, this year’s was extra special thanks to the three new boats being welcomed to our fleet. Due to the incredible support and efforts of alumni and others, Lafayette Crew now welcomes a new men’s lightweight four, a men’s open four, and a women’s lightweight four. We are extremely grateful to everyone that helped make this possible as it took a tremendous amount of work and fundraising. The touching dedication ceremony could not even be tarnished by the rain thanks to the appearance of a rainbow a short time later. We are honored to row these new shells and will not forgot those for whom they are named.
