Water Safety

This article is OUTSTANDING.  It was written by a drowning investigator, who is also a Mom, and has real-life practical advice that all parents should read.  We live in a beach town with many lakes and rivers, and with the warm weather arriving, many people are taking their kids swimming, boating, and other fun water activities.  Feel free to share it with other family members.  There is no such thing as being too careful with our families by water.

Hayes Township Camp Sea Gull is open

As the sign at the entrance of the park shares, it is open.  Our park hosts Greg and Becky have arrived and are there to answer questions guest may have.  The fishing pier is open, but for now the launch is only available for kayaks and canoes as no trailers can maneuver in the lower lot.

Please be safe and enjoy the beautiful outdoors responsibly.
