Kevin Burnham, as editor of the Boothbay Register newspaper, is the first recipient of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 2-5 designation as a “Coast Guard Auxiliary Safety Partner.” The Safety Partner Program is meant to recognize individuals and businesses in the Boothbay region who have been active supporters of the missions and activities of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
The citation to accompany the Safety Partner certificate reads in part:
Mr. Kevin Burnham is hereby recognized for his past and continuing support of U. S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 2-5, Boothbay Harbor, ME through the publication of feature, news and general information articles and photographs submitted by flotilla Public Affairs, Public Education, and Vessel Examination officers.
That support has been a significant factor in the success of key programs which promote the Auxiliary’s missions of Recreational Boating Safety through safety inspections of recreational boats, online and in-person classes, and on the water safety patrols.
The Safety Partner Program will be ongoing with new recipients designated and recognized, events that will most certainly be reported in the Boothbay Register.
“I wish to thank Mr. Chatham, Mr. Stanley, and Flotilla 2-5, for the recognition,” said Burnham. “Having lived in the Boothbay region my entire life, I know how important getting safe boating information out to the public is.”
