Mark Kimber, the new Sylvan Beach Flotilla 2-6 commander, looks to live up to the Coast Guard motto, Semper Paratus (Always Ready), by encouraging training and member mentoring. The aim is to be mission-ready, he notes, whether it involves teaching boating safety, conducting safety patrols, or participating in search and rescue.
Joining him at the helm is John Conroy, the new vice flotilla commander.
Conroy, from Cazenovia, holds certifications as a coxswain, instructor, personal watercraft operator, and vessel examiner. An Auxiliarist since 2002, Conroy has served in training and operations roles. He is a past flotilla commander and past division commander.
