Swamp Fox Power Squadron
Florence, SC






Time to move on and celebrate the season. Spring is upon us although I have to admit the temp this morning when I went to get the paper was like 32° with wind. Not exactly T Shirt and shorts weather but it's coming. It won't be long until (for me) those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer have arrived. That also sounds like it's time to check your boats out for a great boating season. Don't forget your VSC. It only costs a few minutes of your time and it's something you and your fellow passengers will be glad you did.

Me? Repairs on our house begin Monday; outside stuff Monday and roof the 13th. Not sure about the inside stuff yet. It's a start. After all we'll take things one day at a time Wishing everyone a very happy Easter.

Here's a link to our District 26 website Check it out and be informed. There's info about our recent (virtual) Spring Conference and a Celebration of Awards. Need to add the logo for our 2020 website award. We also have a couple of YouTube videos for you to view with more to follow. I also need to add the 2021 VSC logo. Oh well. Stay healthy and be safe.
