Swamp Fox Power Squadron
Florence, SC




The holidays have come and gone and a New Year is upon us. We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday and times together with friends and family that were fun and memorable. I'm thinking of warmer weather not too far in the distant future and how fortunate we don't have that thing call S N O W. We have friends and family who live in Virginia and Maryland. Lots of snow but not nearly what the folks who live in Alpine Villages in Austria are experiencing. Snow? How about tons? Enough to cause multiple avalanches and enough to isolate villages from the world. Roads totally blocked. Yup. I'll take the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer anytime. Did I say summer? Hey, maybe there's still time for some last minute work on the boat? Or maybe a CPR or a First Aid class? I'm thinking boating season can't be too far off and, not to forget, there's always time for some fishing. How about your VSC check? Just remember a VSC doesn't take a bunch of time.

Here's a link to our District 26 website Be sure to take a peek and think about our upcoming March Spring Conference in Myrtle Beach. And how about our Cruise & Rendezvous coming up in May. It's all on our website. Check it out and be informed.
