To the Editor:
I wanted to say a big thank you to the volunteers from the West Linn Lions and the Marine Patrol for a wonderful Saturday morning. They put on a Safe Boating class that my family and friends completely enjoyed.
They were patient and kind and showed us all some great boating lessons. They taught our kids how to row in a canoe, boat etiquette, the importance of life jackets, some life-saving techniques, had yummy muffins and even served the kids pizza.
Each child left with a cool hat and T-shirt and will receive a certificate in boat safety. It was all free.
I hope next year more people will attend with their kids because it was a fabulous learning experience.
Thanks again, fellas. You gave of your time and our kids ate it up.
