I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend and I am excited to share some events for you to attend. Independence Day weekend is the most heavily trafficked holiday on the water, and with this year’s increase in first time boaters it’s more important than ever to educate constituents on the importance of safe and responsible boating.

Also, fire season is among us and I know fireworks are a fun July 4th tradition, please remember to follow your local ordinances to avoid adding to the devastating wildfires in the North State.
