Sailing / Yacht Club
Over 50 years ago, a group of boaters, who met regularly at the Lake Front by 5th Street decided it was time to form a Club and have a real organization. When the 5th Street Yacht Club was formed, one of the biggest difficulties of launching the Boats on the beach at the end of Fifth Street was around bonfires in the evenings. The Club had its beginning. At that time Fifth Street was in the processes of being paved as it was like a second Burma Road.
