Each year, in an effort to promote the importance of agriculture, the Hernando-Citrus Farm Bureau awards cash donations to area food banks. For 2014, the donation was presented to Citrus United Basket, an organization that provides food, financial and material assistance to more than 6,000 individuals. Jimmy Brooks, Farm Bureau director, presented a check for $200 to Kathy LeMons, food pantry manager.

Coast Guard Auxiliary busy

Members of Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 15-8, have been busy over the past couple of months.

During the January meeting, Division 15 Commander Paul Pelletier addressed members, and member Jack Cullen gave an in-service training class to those present.

Later that month, flotilla instructors worked with students taking the Boating Skills and Seamanship course, helping with navigational charts and tools of the trade. Commander Ray O'Connell swore in new members James Nastelli, Karen Skonecki, Frank Brunot, Charla Eitel and Rolland Eitel Jr.

The flotilla, an all-volunteer, uniformed branch of the Coast Guard, focuses on recreational boating safety through public education and free vessel safety checks.
