Earth Day Every Day

On the heels of the official Earth Day on April 22nd we are cruising straight on into the summer boating season. Our Earth Day celebrations included sharing some of our environment articles through our social media communities as well as sponsoring the Waterkeeper Gala that took place amidst much glitz and glam on the 21st. Supporting a cause that strives to keep our waters clean and healthy is a bit of a no brainer, not just because we are boaters but because we live on this Earth. After you read the post-mortem on the Waterkeeper fundraiser take a few moments out of your day to watch the featured video by Tim Thompson. It is compelling enough to make Waterkeepers out of even the most skeptical amongst us. @CdnYachting
