Donated kits to keep SC boaters well-lit on July 4


IRMO, S.C. (AP) — Two South Carolina companies are trying to keep boaters on Lake Murray safer during the July 4th holiday.

The Lake Murray Boat Club and West Marine are teaming up to provide boaters with glow sticks to keep with them during the holiday.

The free Light Up the Lake kits also have a whistle, a Department of Natural Resources safety handbook and a discount coupon for safety gear.

Organizers say the red, green and white glow sticks can help boaters get to shore if their other lighting fails.
