‘Life Jacket Exchange’ in Deltaville on Heritage Day

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 62 of Deltaville has received a grant from the BoatUS Foundation to provide life jackets to children by means of a free “Life Jacket Exchange.” 

The flotilla will exchange a child’s worn out or outgrown life jacket. Bring your child and their unusable life jacket to the USCG Auxiliary booth at Heritage Day on Saturday, July 4, in Deltaville between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. While the supply lasts, your child’s unusable life jacket will be exchanged for a life jacket that properly fits and is new or like new condition.

Life jackets also will be exchanged on Thursday, July 16, at 4 p.m. immediately following the Camp Rescue program at the Deltaville Rescue Squad building on General Puller Highway in Deltaville.

The child must be present to receive an exchange life jacket. 

For details on this program, upcoming boater safety classes or information about joining the auxiliary, please contact Michele Hutton at 570-956-4308 (cell) or email .
