During the dog days of summer in the mid-1960’s, events were held in the waters of the Susquehanna River.
Water skiing was becoming a popular hobby for area people along with boating.
Clearfield had an organization of boating enthusiasts, the Clearfield Outboard Boating Club.
In June of 1964, plans were made to treat 45 Clearfield Area Senior High School boys who helped construct a new dock at Lower Witmer Park.
The boys and their parents were treated to boat rides, water skiing instructions and refreshments.
On the Fourth of July, the Clearfield Area Jaycees celebrated the holiday with a boat show.
The show featured a boat parade and waterskiing exhibitions by the Clearfield Outboard Boating Club. Also, free boat rides were given.
