Journalist Bob Madigan came along on our “Good News Goes to Washington” cruise on the Potomac River. His report features sound from our chartered 85-ft yacht and, although it is just a minute long, really captures the spirit and message of the Good News Network.
“Good News is Good For You,” the headline screams, and he talked to one of our Good News Ambassadors on board, positive psychologist Caroline Miller, saying there is science to prove it.
The yacht party on September 9 celebrated the 15th anniversary of the Good News Network’s launch in 1997. The public as well as friends and reporters were invited on the free cruise aboard the second oldest yacht in the United States still being chartered.
We were told that the vessel, Finished Business, was once used by President Richard Nixon during the Watergate hearings to escape to the Bahamas for some relaxation.
On a sunny Sunday, a large banner, reading “Good News Goes to Washington”, was tied to the starboard side as she motored up the Potomac just offshore of the Jefferson Memorial and Washington monument.
