LAKEPORT, Calif. — The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 08-08 of Lake County will hold a complimentary life jacket giveaway for children on Saturday, May 20, at the Library Park gazebo in Lakeport.

It will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Assisting the Flotilla will be the Konocti Women’s Service Club, or KWSC, which made possible this free life jacket project.

The distribution of child and youth life jackets will be for children 12 years and younger within one of two weight divisions: 30 to 50 pounds or 50 to 90 pounds.

The KWSC members will register and weigh the children. Qualified Flotilla members will fit the child with the correct size and demonstrate to the parent the proper wearing of the life jacket.

All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Information on Safe Boating and other material will be available as well as information on complimentary vessel safety checks.

The Flotilla of Lake County encourages boat owners and especially those with children to stay safe on the water by utilizing these complimentary services the Flotilla offers.

Play it safe — wear your lifejackets.

Dorothy De Lope is public affairs officer for Flotilla 08-08 of Lake County.
