The Sea Tow Foundation will be opening six additional Life Jacket Loaner Stands in the Miami area in early October thanks to a donation from Eagle Brands Distributors and Anheuser-Busch. If you are starting to see a pattern here, we’re not surprised. Brewery giant Anheuser-Busch and its distributors are true leaders when it comes to civic-mindedness and giving back to local communities.
The Sea Tow Foundation recently purchased $10,000 worth of life jackets with donations from Sea Tow members located across the country. A heartfelt “Thank You” goes out to everyone who made a donation! These bright yellow life jackets will be made available to boaters to borrow in life jacket loaner stands and will also be used at various events that require life jackets.

Please submit a picture of you or a family member wearing a life jacket on the Sea Tow Foundation’s Facebook page (facebook.com/SeaTowFoundation). We love to see our Sea Tow members looking safe in your PFDs!
In other news, the Sea Tow Foundation’s Executive Director, Gail Kulp, recently attended the U.S. Power Squadrons’ Governing Board Meeting in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Power Squadrons (USPS) turn 100 years old this year and the meeting celebrated this anniversary in many ways.
At the beginning of 2014, Sea Tow and the Sea Tow Foundation signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This agreement outlined numerous ways in which the two organizations would be working together to promote boating safety. At the meeting, Gail spoke to the audience of over 400 U.S. Power Squadron members gathered from across the country about this important partnership agreement.
