    This past week the family, the community and Auxiliary said our final goodbyes to Sherrie Alverson.
    It was a time to reflect on the many contributions she made to the Auxiliary, as well as throughout the many other organizations she was involved with.
    Anyone who knew Sherrie knew she gave everything she did her all.

    It is always sad to lose a member of our Auxiliary family. We learned this week that Ron Piasecki crossed the bar on May 17, 2017. Ron was a member of Flotilla 13 in Shell Point and later joined Flotilla 12 before making the hard decision to leave the Auxiliary. We wish you fair winds and following seas Ron. Thank you for your dedication to the USCG Auxiliary!

    The Memorial Day holiday is one to commemorate those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our Nation.
    For many, it is also the beginning of summer, bringing many in our area, and elsewhere, out to the coast.
    It is no coincidence that the Memorial Day weekend is proceeded by National Safe Boating Week.
    Members of Flotilla 12 work hard with local officials to increase the awareness of the need for safe boating and increasing public awareness for the potential dangers of not being prepared when out enjoying the water.

    Nationally, 146 Paddlers were killed, 92 seriously injured.
