Built on an ancient Indian shell mound in 1898 by north county pioneers Harry and Susan DuBois, the two-story, historic home attracted a steady stream of visitors until tours were halted after damage from hurricanes led to its closing in 2008.
Palm Beach Power Squadron is offering its boating safety course Feb. 6 and 7 at 1125 Old Dixie Highway in Lake Park. The classroom is about 1/2 mile south of Northlake Boulevard. Here’s another reason to take advantage now: for a limited time, the state-approved course is free for those between 12 and 19 years old who are accompanied by a parent.
The course is typically $30 a person. Registration starts at 8:15 a.m. Saturday, with the class running from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A course review at 2 p.m. Sunday precedes a 60-question exam. Passing the test gets you a certificate and your required Boating Safety Education ID Card. The state mails out the card in about two weeks.
