Summer arrives with rain and crowds

The calendar may say that summer begins in June, but we all know it really begins Memorial Day weekend. And what a weekend -- rain, wind, riptides and crowds of people who dodged the rain early and enjoyed the sunshine that finished off the weekend.

Now, we're hoping for better weather as we approach the June 6 date for the Tybee Island Kayak Race, benefitting the Tybee Marine Science Center. Lighthouse Pizza has a team in the race, and we hope to raise the most money of any team to benefit this great program. You can help by stopping by the store and making a donation.

Ready, set, Kayak Race! please help

One of our nearby neighbors on Tybee is the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. This wonderful program is a destination for many visitors, school and youth groups who get the chance to learn -- hands on! about the coastal Georgia ecosystem. It also plays an important role in educating visitors and residents on how to protect our endangered sea turtles, which nest on Tybee's beaches. 

On June 6, Lighthouse Pizza will participate in the 11th Annual Tybee Island Sea Kayak Races to benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center.

We invite all our friends, customers and visitors to help us raise more money than any other team in the race! Stop by the store and make a donation for the Sea Kayak Race. We'll have a donation jar and poster up soon. Our goal is at least $500, but we'd love to raise more for this great program!

Then, June 6, come out to A-J's Dockside at the Back River and cheer on our kayak in the Race Across the River! There will also be a River Race and Little Tybee Challenge race.
