The Toledo Sail and Power Squadron's Change of Watch and 75th anniversary celebration was Jan. 13 at Carranor Hunt and Polo Club. The local squadron is part of the United States Power Squadron. It provides classes in boating safety and navigation and many classes are already under way in anticipation of the upcoming boating season.

Founded and chartered in 1938, the squadron has taught public safe boating and advanced courses for 75 years and has provided vessel safety checks. As a fraternal organization, it excels in sociability and friendliness. This year's commander is Felicia Evans, who is the wife of Nelson D. Evans, mayor of Perrysburg.
