Springtime also means we're spooling up to present our Water Safety Program to the area school children, every year we reach about 6000 kids of the elementary and middle school age to make them aware of the need to stay safe in the waters of Thurmond Lake.
To reach even more kids of all ages, Marti and I participated in a huge outdoor sports show to spread the word. We covered a booth and had all kinds of handouts promoting Corps of Engineers programs and information on our country's great national park system.
Right nearby our booth was a TV celebrity doing a meet and greet of folks attending the show. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have him help plug our water safety program.
John Godwin from Duck Dynasty, a really nice guy, very gracious to all who stopped by.
Maybe I'd look good in a beard like his...
