Lake Wateree Association (LWA) Chairman Bill Stroup (left) and LWA board member Scott Sutherland (right) show off examples of replacement life preservers purchased as part of a $500 gift from Sam Kendall’s owner Jonathan Bazinet (center). “Anytime we ask Jon for something, he always comes through,” Sutherland said. The LWA places the 90 vests on boards supplied by Duke Energy at six locations on Lake Wateree, four on the Fairfield County side, as well as the Buck Hill and Clearwater Cove landings on the Kershaw County side of the lake. “We have to replace many of them every year,” Stroup said. The vests are available in various sizes -- including children’s sizes like these -- for free. Users are asked to return them to the boards when they’re done. “If you take one and forget to return it, please think about stopping back by and dropping them off, or on your next trip to the lake, so someone else can use them,” Bazinet suggested.
