Free Life Jackets and Vessel Safety Checks

The U.S. Coast Guard Aux­il­iary, Flotilla 88 of Lake County, will hold its annual life jacket give­away for chil­dren tomor­row and offer a free ves­sel safety check. The life jacket give­away will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the gazebo at Red­bud Park on Lakeshore Drive in Clear­lake. It will last until 1PM, or until they run out of life jack­ets for kids for kids 12 years of age and under. A par­ent or guardian must accom­pany the child and must com­plete an infor­ma­tion slip to be eli­gi­ble. The ves­sel safety check will start at 9:30AM at the marina at Red­bud Park. Qual­i­fied ves­sel exam­in­ers for boat own­ers will be on hand. Boats can be on a trailer or in the water at the docks.
