U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Lake Conroe Flotilla to Host Open House During National Safe Boating Week

When: May 18 – 24, 2019

Tome: 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Where: Lake Conroe Flotilla Building, 14336 Hwy.105 West, Conroe, TX 77304

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Lake Conroe Flotilla is proud to sponsor an open house to help promote National Safe Boating Week, May 18-24, the official launch of the 2019 Safe Boating Campaign. The public is invited to join America’s Volunteer Lifesavers for a meet and greet, and to learn about boating safety and the many programs the Auxiliary has in its support. National Safe Boating Campaign is a year-long drive that promotes the value of voluntary, consistent life jacket wear by recreational boaters; it is sponsored by the U.S. Coast Guard and over three hundred government and private organizations. “Wearing an appropriate life jacket is the single most important thing a boater can do for his or her safety,” said A. Zorzi, Lake Conroe Flotilla Commander. New life jackets are much more comfortable, lightweight and stylish than the bulky orange style most boaters know. There are innovative options, such as inflatable life jackets, allowing mobility and flexibility for activities like boating, fishing, paddling or hunting, and are much cooler in the warmer weather.

Boating safety education and a life jacket saves lives, spread the message. For more information, please visit http://www.uscgauxlakeconroe.com or http://www.safeboatingcampaign.com
