Campus Community Invited to Saturday's Dedication of the Tallman Rowing Center


Contributed by Chris Pollock

This Saturday, November 3, Ithaca College will dedicate the new Robert B. Tallman Rowing Center down on Cayuga Inlet. The magnificent new facility replaces the Haskell Davidson Boathouse, which was torn down last year after nearly four decades of service to IC crew.

We'll start the day on Saturday with the Freeman Cup intrasquad race at 9:00 a.m., followed by the formal dedication of the facility starting at 11:00 a.m.
