Prairie du Chien – On Saturday, September 28th the Prairie du Chien Flotilla, US Coast Guard Auxiliary will hold a brat fry from 10AM to 3PM at Nelson True Value in Prairie du Chien. Money raised at this event will be used to purchase needed public boating safety education materials and to train Auxiliary volunteers in the performance of the many services the Auxiliary provides on the river and to the area boating community from environmental safety to search and rescue and navigation services.
Established by Congress in 1939 The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed civilian component of the US Coast Guard and supports the Coast Guard in nearly all mission areas. Area Auxiliarists volunteer their time and purchase their own uniforms and most equipment in their effort to serve their communities. We are always in need of more volunteers.
Come out to Nelson’s, have a brat or a burger meet and support your Coast Guard Auxiliary.
