Swamp Fox Power Squadron
Florence, SC




I know. I know. The little girl has a secret she wants to share with Santa but it probably has nothing to do with boating. Well, in way, she sort of does. She reminds us of family and that very special time of year for children and grandchildren (as well as some of us grandparents). It's a time to reflect on the year gone by and to remember how fortunate we really are. It's a time to embrace family and friends. They are, after all, our connection to the world. It's also a time to look forward to and plan for the year ahead.

Maybe next year is time to plan for some long overdue work on the boat? Or maybe a CPR or a First Aid class? There's always time for some fishing. I'll bet many are planning ahead to beat the spring rush for their VSC check. Just remember a VSC doesn't take a bunch of time.

Wishing everyone safe boating and a safe and wonderful holiday!
