As part of a nationwide observance, Rex Marine Center is celebrating National Marina Day on June 2 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., 144 Water St., Norwalk.
“National Marina Day is an annual celebration of the important role marinas play in waterfront communities all across America,” said Bill Gardella Jr., general manager of Rex. “Each day, this country’s marinas serve as safe, family-friendly gateways to boating and stewards of the environment. We hope you will visit Rex Marine Center, and enjoy the events we have planned.”
To observe this day and celebrate its 76th anniversary serving the boaters of Fairfield County, the staff at Rex Marine Center has planned an open house focusing on safety awareness, environmental responsibility, and seminars on engine maintenance, fiberglass repairs and varnishing techniques. There will also be kayak safety demonstrations, an in-house boat show featuring new and used boats, scuba diving information, and canvas information from the experts. Guests can also meet representatives from the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, Norwalk Seaport Association and the Harbor Watch Program.
“Now, more then ever, Americans need clean, safe and relaxing locations at which to spend their leisure time. National Marina Day reminds our customers and our community that Rex Marine Center is a local, environmentally-friendly, beautiful waterfront destination.”
Rex Marine Center invites all boat owners and those interested in becoming boat owners to attend. For information and a list of participating organizations for the event visit www.rexmarine.com.
