USCG Aux Flotilla 07-10-10 was the recipient of the District Commodores Cup for ”Best Flotilla of the Year” 2014 at the Coast Guard Auxiliary District 7 D Train Sept 2015 meeting in Orlando. There are 105 Flotillas in District 7 so it is a real accomplishment for our small Flotilla to be singled out with this prestigious award which, I am told, is the first Flotilla to win it from Division 10, the state of Georgia and CG Sector Charleston.
We sure feel special!

The volunteers of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 07-10-10 St Simons Island are nick named;  "Guardians of the Golden Isles".
One way they are living up to their name lately is by applying "Life Jacket Zone" stenciling at local City of Brunswick, Glynn County, Georgia DNR docks, ramps and some private area marinas to remind boaters to put on their flotation devices before getting underway.
The stenciling program is a part of a Recreational Boating Safety Committee campaign, partnering with DIRAUX, for which Flotilla 07-10-10 is the first in our Division to take on the project.  Happily, we found that every local authority we reached out to were all enthusiastic supporters of the idea and wasted no time in granting their permissions, even sending out an encouraging Brunswick City Commissioner to photo and report on what we were doing at their busy Liberty Park ramp.
 So after gathering the stencils, paint, various other tools and painting clothes…off we went.As for stenciling the private marina docks, that was a tantalizing afterthought. While we were going to Jekyll Island to do a DNR ramp, we decided to approach the popular Jekyll Harbor Marina, who is already our marine partner, to see if they would be open to it. Indeed after I explained the program, the dock master just said “let’s do it” and we did! When we finished he brought cones to protect it as it dried and stood with us for a picture that we put in Face Book, he, which in turn, posted it on their Jekyll Harbor Face Book page and remarked that he was proud to partner with us in the effort to save lives.
So going towards the north end of St Simons Island, we contacted the exclusive Hampton River Marina and asked for permission to place one there. I explained the program and the manager said can you put one down on both of our docks? So we did that and he too posed for a picture with our stencil team plus we made a very eager new Marine partner who wants to have us out for a Vessel Safety Check blitz. So far, the Flotilla 10-10 Aux Stencil Team skillfully painted sixteen yellow and black signs all around the area within a week. Our goal is to promote the true perception that a life jacket will save your life...but only if you WEAR IT!
