Newcomers Learn About the USCGA


June was another fabulous Newcomers luncheon at the Marco Island Yacht Club (MIYC). New and prospective members were welcomed with friendly conversation, wonderful food and the distribution of prizes donated by our fabulous sponsors.

Walter Jaskiewicz, Public Affairs Officer for the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA), Flotilla 9-5, Marco Island, was the guest speaker. Jaskiewicz educated the group on the history of the USCGA and what their responsibilities are today. One of the responsibilities is to support the Federal Government, in such duties as search and rescue missions, marine environmental protection and marine safety, to name a few. Ro Enners was the lucky winner of a USCGA gift bag.

If you would like to attend a luncheon and join in the fun and meet some fabulous women, contact our membership chairs at MarcoMembership@gmail.com. Please note on the subject line, Attention: Membership Chairs. Luncheons are held the third Thursday of the month at the Marco Island Yacht Club.
