DSO-PV Poster Design Contest


There is a need for a variety of flyer/posters for our Program Visitors to use and post at their visit locations to help advertise all of the various Recreation Boating Safety outreach that the Auxiliary offers to the public.

To help fill this need, District 14’s DSO-PV, Adam Lipka, has created a contest with the approval of our District leadership for our members to design our first flyer / poster for use in our district during National Safe Boating Week this year.  This first poster will be used for advertising Vessel Safety Checks.  With the idea that they can be placed up at various locations prior to a Vessel Examiner "Ramp Watch' or "Dock Walk" event so that the public can be made aware of the location and time of such an event and possess sufficient information prior from the Auxiliary website or other resources to prepare to pass ahead of time.

All submissions should be made by the members via their Flotilla Commanders, who should review the submission prior to forwarding the submission to the DSO-PV via email at ofcalipka@yahoo.com.  The contest is open to all District 14 Auxiliary members so please share this information with your shipmates. 

Any questions may be submitted to the DSO-PV as well via email at ofcalipka@yahoo.com

USCG and USCGAUX Snapshots at UOG’s 50th Charter Day

Kudos goes out to the USCG and USCG Auxiliary for their participation in the University of Guam’s 50th Charter Day celebration on March 13, 2018!  They engaged with students, visitors and others at UOG's College of Natural and Applied Sciences.  Petty Officer Vinnie DiMauro and Seaman Tamera Rex showcased the Station's USCG vessel by having children on-board and talking about the USCG Missions and Roles.

The USCG Auxiliary team, including Hilda Duncan, Rudy Salas and Debbie Weger manned the static displays, gave presentations on the importance of having PFDs while on the water and having all the other required equipment while on a vessel and how important these individual gear and equipment can save their lives and others.  They further reminded families who planned on going out on the waters to make sure they are equipped with the proper safety gear and equipment.  Si Yu’os Ma’ase’ to all!
