On May 31 Ogdensburg Mayor William Nelson, seen here with members of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, issued a Proclamation in support of National Safe Boating Week. Every year, over the past 20 years, more than 650 people have lost their lives in boating accidents. In 2012, 379 persons died from drowning and were not wearing a life jacket. Many of these were preventable fatalities if the people involved had taken the precaution of wearing their life jacket. The Mayor and the Auxiliary urge all boaters to wear their life jacket at all times on the water. (submitted photo)
