Interview with Art Cohn aboard the Lois McClure

Celebrations will take place tomorrow in Quebec City as Quebeckers mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of their city, and Vermont will be well represented by the crew of the replica schooner Lois McClure. Art Cohn, director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is aboard the ship. He speaks with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb.

Maritime Museum boat will join Quebec anniversary, launch Champlain’s 400th

In a few weeks, a reproduction of a 19th century boat that plied the waters of Lake Champlain will set sail for Quebec City. The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s replica canal schooner, the Lois McClure, will visit Quebec to help mark the city’s 400th anniversary. As VPR’s Ross Sneyd reports, the festivities in Quebec also start the observation of a big anniversary in the Champlain Valley.
