“The holiday season is no exception, as several members volunteer their time towards building a positive relationship with the families of Trigg and surrounding counties. Our year-around commitments include extensive boating safety classes for all area residents and visitors, boat safety checks, as well as providing everyone a safe place to enjoy their water recreation activities in western Kentucky.”
These comments were communicated to members and guests at their meeting this past week.
The extensive Christmas Tree Exhibit at the Janice Mason Art Museum in downtown Cadiz, with well over forty individually decorated trees, was opened to the public this past week. It included the “Peaceful Harbor Tree” from the Coast Guard, along with complimentary coloring books for the children. The display will be open for viewing until Thursday, Jan. 30.
