Every summer Jeff Foster Trucking treats its vendors and customers to a cruise on the retired United States Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Sundew in appreciation for solid and loyal business relationships. This grand event invites about 200 people to a Lake Superior and harbor cruise, dinner and drinks. Folks board at Pier B with a stunning view of Pier B Resort, Bayfront and the Lift Bridge. After a safety briefing by Jeff Foster himself, the boat sets off with the intrepid travelers aboard and heads out to sea. Under the lift bridge and out to open waters they sail where the guests enjoy a view of Duluth from the lake from Canal Park down to Lester River. The Sundew then returns through the Lift Bridge as the passengers wave and cheer to the excited Canal Park visitors and sails on through, passing under the Blatnik Bridge and pulling in to the historic CN loading dock #6. Turning around there, all are safely returned to Pier B well before night-fall. Dinner is served en route and all are treated to a delicious hot meal prepared by the Sundew Crew.
This year, the event coincided with Jeff Foster’s Birthday; 200 of his friends and colleagues were able to celebrate his birthday in style with cake and party favors!
