LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — On Jan. 9, the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, District 11N Flotilla 08-08 of Lake County held its yearly change of watch ceremony at Angel’s Mexican Restaurant in Finley.

This ceremony held each year installs the new flotilla commander, vice commander and the staff officers.

The COVID-19 virus has limited the activities of the Lake County Flotilla.

Following the United States Coast Guard virus guidelines, it has maintained its position in safety patrols on the lake, recruiting new members, training and offering free vessel safety checks.

The yearly free life jacket giveaway for children has been deferred to a later date because of the virus.

Once the restrictions of the USCG have been lifted, the lifejacket project will be scheduled.

If you are interested in joining the Flotilla, please call 707-570-8860 or visit the group’s Facebook page.
