The first annual Lake Oconee Blessing of the Boats will take place at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, May 6.
The event is presented by Lake Oconee Community Church (LOCC) and is sponsored by WDDK 103.9 The Dock.
Boats are invited to gather in the open water in the Great Waters area by 1:30 p.m. Tune your radio to WDDK 103.9 – The DOCK for music and instructions. At the countdown, sound your horns and follow the parade!
David Key, the Chaplain of Lake Oconee, will greet your passengers and your vessel, wish you a safe boating season and toss you your very own commemorative, floating key chain.
Photographs of each boat will be taken and will be available the following week at the LOCC Blessing of the Boats webpage, www.lakeoconeecommunitychurch.com/blessing.
Don’t forget to decorate your boat! The picture of the best decorated boat will be submitted to the local newspapers the following week.
Come be a part of this exciting new event and help welcome summertime to Lake Oconee.
