Team Coast Guard BannerU.S.C.G. Auxiliary Flotilla 20-02   


Flotilla 20-02 recently co-sponsored an event with Station Charlevoix at the Petoskey Cinema in conjunction with the showing of The Guardian, a motion picture featuring the Coast Guard.  On display was Station Charlevoix's 25' SAFE boat, along with an auxiliary PWC.  Both the Coasties and Auxiliarists on hand gave boat tours, answered questions regarding recreational boating safety, and distributed a variety of informational literature to the public.  The event was a prime example of Team Coast Guard working together to ensure the safety of our waterways and the recreational boating public.

Escorted by Station Charlevoix's 41' Utility Boat and 25' SAFE Boat, the United States Coast Guard Cutter Acacia (WLB-406), the "Ace of the Great Lakes" and the "Last of the 180's", departs its moorings in Round Lake for the last time, taking one final bow before the residents and boaters of Charlevoix, who will forever be grateful for her faithful service.


Members Dick Munsterman and Stefan Scholl pose for the camera prior to getting underway for some PWC training on Crooked Lake.  Members of Charlevoix Flotilla 20-02 routinely perform safety patrols in Station Charlevoix's area of operations, and are continuously engaged in training to increase their boating knowledge and skills.
