Our CG Open House

Attached are some pictures of the Coast Guard Open House held on May 19. The spirit of the day was not dampened by the rain we had. The father of the boy with "Coastie" is a cook at the station. The two kids with "Coastie" are from Rudyard,MI. Their father is a State Trooper and he and his wife are having faulty fire extinguishers explained to them.

“PFD (Personal Flotation Device) Panda” at the Home Show with his fellow U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary members (from left) Larry Ferguson, Mark Eldridge, and “Edge” Edgecombe. The four teach visitors about boater and water safety, and help recruit new auxiliary members. Mr. Ferguson, Mr. Eldridge, and PFD Panda all reside in St. Ignace, and Mr. Edgecombe is from Cheboygan.

Members of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary were in attendance teaching people about boating safety and recruiting people to join their organization. Other vendors included local businesses such as Ace Hardware and True Value, George’s Body Shop, Cedars of Mackinac, St. Ignace in Bloom, Gifts Galore, and the French Trading Post, as well as Gaylor Trucking and Besteman’s Maple Products of Rudyard.

The 65 vendors were the most ever for the show, and the parking lot was full both Friday evening and all day Saturday. One of the advantages the St. Ignace show has, said arena employee Kevin Campbell, is that the admission is free.

“A lot of places charge anywhere from $5 to $10 for admission,” he said. “Ours is free, so it encourages people to come out and see what’s going on.”
