The Coast Guard Auxiliary will be conducting  Vessel Safety Checks, but due to the cool, wet forecast it's been moved to next Saturday, May 27.  It will still be near Wabasha at the Parkside Marina.

It's for all vessels, but they're encouraging all paddle craft, as well, including canoes and kayaks. Greg Opdahl with the Auxiliary explains.

They're also looking for new auxiliary members. Get more information at cgaux.org

Boating safety week begins on Saturday, as well.
