United States Power Squadrons hands out honors


At the US Power Squadrons annual meeting held recently in Jacksonville, Fla., five squadrons from across the country and one District were honored with Distinguished Civic Service Awards.

Sponsored by BoatUS, the awards are given annually to the USPS District and Squadrons in recognition of exceptional service and public boating safety education and service to the boating community.

“While America’s recreational boaters are enjoying the water with friends and family, Power Squadron members work hard giving up their own time to help make boating safer. They offer boat owners free vessel safety checks, provide boating safety instruction, and more. We greatly appreciate their commitment to ensuring everyone has a safe day on the water,” said BoatUS Foundation for assistant director of boating safety Ted Sensenbrenner.
