Note: The Traveling Eagle is awarded to the “Best Overall” in the Flotilla and presented during the Annual Picnic at the Park. The recipient has their name and year listed at the base of the award and will retain procession of it until the following year Flotilla. The Traveling Eagle is a beautiful hand carved, wooden Bald Eagle which proudly stands about 2 feet tall. It was carved by Paul Rogers and first awarded in 2003. It’s fun to look at the award to see not only who’s received the award and in what year, but also to see how it’s gone back and forth between families who have competed to get the award back.

Awards were presented at the July 22, 2017 Picnic on Big Wood

Special thanks go out to all the participants and congratulations to all the winners.
