Green for Greens to raise funds for youth programming and scholarships
  • First Tee Savannah, part of a national, nonprofit organization that seamlessly integrates the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, is partnering with Front Door Produce this summer to raise funds for its youth programs and scholarships.
  • The fundraiser, Green for Greens, offers local residents the opportunity to purchase a box of seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables from farms in Southern Georgia, picked two days before delivery. Each box costs $30, and First Tee receives a portion of the proceeds to support its year-round youth development programs and camps.

  • There was a circuit board issue with our fuel pumps which prevented us from pumping gas over the weekend. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. The issue was corrected on Monday, and we were able to resume operations.
  • With boat movements at a minimum, our staff took advantage of the time and replaced wheels on some of the jet ski racks, pressure washed the deck outside of the fish cleaning shack, scraped the dock anchoring pilings, and continued replacing the sacrificial anodes on the seawall.

  • As a follow-up and clarification to my last Security Update, the golf cart incident I shared in my June Landings Journal article did not happen in The Landings.
  • As a refresher, I shared that I recently read that a Texas man was arrested after a passenger fell off a golf cart and died on April 26. Local Law Enforcement Officers responded just after 11 p.m., and their preliminary investigation revealed three people were traveling back to a residence within the community.
  • The golf cart went over a raised utility hole cover, causing the victim, who was standing in the rear of the golf cart, to fall off and hit the road. The passenger, 34, was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Investigators arrested the driver of the golf cart on DUI manslaughter charges.
  • This unfortunate event happened at The Floridian National Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The focal point and takeaway from my article was that the incident occurred, and very well could have occurred here. Please be careful when operating a golf cart.

  • If April showers bring May flowers, then summer storms bring mosquitos! Rain causes mosquito populations to rise higher than average.
  • University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Entomologist Elmer Gray says that when rainy conditions occur, Georgia residents must be extra diligent in emptying the rainwater from outdoor containers.
  • Mosquitos can lay eggs in any standing water, which means that watering cans, children’s toys, clogged or improperly draining downspouts, or even dishes placed under potted plants can become a breeding ground.
