The Golden Life Jacket Award is given to local heroes in communities across the nation who work or volunteer in the marine or boating industry and have made a difference in their boating community. Thurmond Lake Sail & Power Squadrons sent regular reports on their life jacket loaner stand to the Sea Tow Foundation throughout the boating season that showed the stand was making a positive boating safety impact in their area.
The Sea Tow Foundation is still accepting applications from any non-profit organization or boating agency interested in hosting a Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Stand for the 2015 boating season. Applications are available online at www.boatingsafety.com. All applications must be received by March 1st to be considered for the 2015 boating season.
