Last month our community lost one of it's own in a drowning at a boat launch on False River... This painful tragedy was found to have been preventable, the boat launch along with all the other public launches in the parish was not equipped with a basic life saving ring buoy. The righteous Parish Council took note promptly when it was realized such a "petty" amount of funding would protect the common good. Unfortunately, bureaucracy and legal wrangling have all but stopped the project.
This fundraiser aims to challenge the parish community to make a small "investment" to end drownings at public boat launches. Donations of a few dollars will go a long way in providing life saving equipment for every publically accessible boat launch on our lakes and rivers. Join the movement if able and share amongst your friends to spread the word to make a difference.
