Helping grow the boating and fishing lifestyle, Thetford Marine is celebrating National Marina Day by donating its green Marine Care products to all 10 participating marinas nationwide. Taking place on Saturday, June 12 and organized by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), this day promotes the role marinas play in family-friendly gateways to boating and celebrates the marina personnel who act as stewards to the environment.
