Friends of the Beach

2014 Friends of the Beach Committee Chair – Joan “Cherry” Giovinazzo

We are a group of people with many different talents. The main objective and reward is the smooth operation of the ferry and boat launch, so that everyone can enjoy our fabulous beach. We improve, repair and add any necessities.

There will be several fund raising events throughout the year to assist in the continuation of our program.

All activities need volunteers. We would love to have “helpers” and new committee members. Please fill out the form below if you are interested or would like further information regarding the Friends of the Beach. Your message will be forwarded to the Committee Chair. Contact Us!


The HIT THE BRICKS Campaign has sold over 112 bricks to date, which have been engraved and installed in front of the ferry house. Blank ones are still available. Please consider buying one or more as we have a total of 1102 bricks available! Forms are available at the ferry house and at the office. Bricks are only $50 each and are a wonderful way to show your support—in perpetuity. Considering making your purchase today!
