tybee floatilla floats for another great causeIt’s time to hit the water, again, when Tybee floats for another great cause.  Tybee Floatilla ‘Will Float for Friends’ on Sunday, August 24th.  Plan to meet us over at the Alley 3 Kayak Launch at 2:00 p.m.  We’ll shove off promptly at 2:30 p.m. and we’ll arrive at the Crab Shack by 6:00 p.m.  This float will be in memory of Frank Schuman, Sr. benefitting the Fresh Air Home.  Every summer the Fresh Air Home (FAH) opens its doors to hundreds of Savannah area children!   The mission of the Home is to improve the health of the children, to build character, and to help them grow into better men and women — both physically and morally.
