Britts Donut Shop 2015 Opening Date!

Pleasure Island's favorite sign of Spring is almost here...Britts Donuts will open for 2015 on Friday March 27th at 4:00 PM!

The long awaited sign appeared recently on the door to this beloved spot on the Carolina Beach Boardwalk which has been making delicious donuts since 1939.

In case you're not already among Britts' legions of devoted fans, don't worry about making tough decisions...Britts serves up just one type - a perfect glazed donut, piping hot, sugary, that melts in your mouth. You can't have just one, and they are best eaten directly from the bag just as soon as they're cool enough to handle. Good luck waiting that long!

When Britts first opens in 2015 they will be open Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays, and will expand the schedule to seven days a week as we get closer to summer.

Thanks to Britts Donuts for making Pleasure Island a little sweeter each summer!

Spotlight on Business: Cape Fear Power and Sail Squadron

Come for the boating education….Stay for the friends

The United States Power Squadrons®, America’s Boating Clubsm, is the largest organization in the world devoted to boating safety, education, and camaraderie. If you are a boating enthusiast, or want to be, this is the organization for YOU!

The organization was founded in 1914 and has grown to be approximately 40,000 strong. It is not a government organization, but close ties are maintained with the United States Coast Guard and State boating agencies. The only requirements for membership are a keen interest in boating-related activities and an eagerness to meet like minded people.

The Cape Fear Sail & Power Squadron®, Cape Fear Boating Club, covers the greater Wilmington area. The real value of membership is increasing your boating knowledge through education, off and on the water. We provide basic boating education and offer advanced courses as a civic service to the general public.

We also have events and meetings that give members a chance to relate to and participate in our favorite pastime of boating. You can participate in cruises with large, medium, and small boats. Additionally, you will be able to take advantage of many special benefits and discounts on a wide range of products, services, and boating insurance.

Another public service activity is our Vessel Safety Check to examine boats for required equipment and award a Coast Guard-recognized compliance decal to vessels that pass the inspection. As a civic service, we also cooperate with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to update nautical charts of the area, and support boater safety programs in public schools. We also issue the Maritime Mobile Service Identity for your VHF radio with DSC.

Join now…membership@capefearsailandpowersquadron.org.
