If you forgot enough life jackets or don't have a throw-type flotation device on board when you launch into the St. Croix River at Lakefront Park in Hudson, have no fear.

A new life jacket loaner station went up over the Memorial Day weekend. Boaters may borrow a PFD in a variety of sizes and return it without charge.

The loaner station was provided through a DNR grant and the labor of Double Good 4-H club from the Baldwin-Woodville area who assembled the project at home.
