(SAVANNAH, GA) The Savannah Jaycees held their inaugural Park Day Celebration, “Day at the Park,” at the Jaycee Park, located at 30 Van Horne Ave. on Tybee Island.
Before the celebration, the Savannah Jaycees worked with the City of Tybee from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., helping to improve the Jaycee Park on Tybee Island. A team rebuilt the horseshoe pit, repaired the trash can receptacles, added mulch to the playground, and repainted and planted around the Jaycee Park sign.
The members held a lowcountry boil and cookout afterwards. Chuck Courtenay Band played live music. The Savannah Jaycees had corn hole, kickball and soccer games going on throughout the day.
Lauren Mathews, event coordinator and VP of Community Development for the Savannah Jaycees, said, “This event was a way for us to celebrate the local Jaycee legacy and impact in the community for over 60 years.”
The event was sponsored by The Savannah Jaycees Foundation, Doc’s Bar, Carriage Trade Public Relations, Creative Approach, Ranco South, Service Brewing, Lawn Bull and the YMCA of Tybee Island.
