‘Orange alert’ at St. Clement of Rome

st_clement_life_1On May 18, priests, administrators, faculty and staff at St. Clement of Rome took part in “Ready, Set, Wear It!” – a national campaign to help children and adults understand the importance of wearing a life jacket while boating.

Assisted by members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, teachers donned orange life jackets to greet students in the morning carpool  line (far left) and devoted the morning assembly to the vests’ proper use. “Frequently we see young children in life jackets, but their parents are not wearing them,” noted Jim Vass, the Coast Guard Auxiliary’s national commodore.
