Skipper Robert Penny of Sea Scout Ship 711 of Lakeport accepted a $833.33 check from ACBS President Barbara Foster and Board member Jim Robello last week.

Their grant request was for materials needed to work on one of the boats in their fleet.  We are happy to provide the Sea Scouts with funds to help them continue learning about boat building and restoration.  These kids have a fleet of boats that they are restoring and repairing and learning while learning new and honing old skills.

Each year, if we have monies from the earnings of the Chapter’s Endowment per the By-Laws, our Chapter grants monies to deserving 501(c)3 non-profits.  This year, we are granting funds to four non-profits and the Sea Scouts in Lakeport on the shores of Clear Lake are certainly worthy.
