OGDENSBURG – Three Ogdensburg businesses have sponsored participation of young people in the the Coast Guard Auxiliary’s About Boating Safely class.

Dr. Vondra-Harwood said, “I am pleased to be part of this program as it is important for young people to develop safe boating skills early in life.”

Kelly Charlton said, “My son took this course several years ago and is a more responsible boater because of the lessons learned in this class.”.
