Palermo Community Library, 2789 Route 3, Palermo. WWII Air Force veteran Kenneth G. Priest II tells story of founding Kenway Boats in his Palermo garage, building wooden runabouts of his own design. Located at the junction of the South Liberty and Banton Roads in Palermo, Kenway provided employment to many local residents who worked in the boat-building shop. Kenway became a valued and respected business in Palermo and the surrounding area. Co-sponsored by Palermo Historical Society and the Library. Free.
