South Shore Hosts Life-Jacket Event

Alameda South Shore Center, 523 South Shore Center West, will host a life-jacket inspection from 4 to 6 p.m. this Friday, May 23, in Neptune Court.

Parents and children are invited to stop by Neptune’s Court in the middle of the mall area to have kids’ life jackets inspected by water professionals.

If their life jacket is worn out, kids will get to trade in the old jacket for a new one! The offer of one new life jacket per family is good while supplies last, organizers say.

The California law states that all children under 13 must wear a life jacket when in or near the waterways.

This event is sponsored by the California Department of Boating and Waterways, the United States Power Squadrons and Radio Disney.
