A portion of the proceeds of each calendar go to benefit the Virginia Beach Lifeguard Association, a nonprofit that works to prevent drownings and promote beach safety, a mission I think all parents can support. Now that I have Anne, I find myself even more grateful for the lifeguards who watch over us when we're at the beach, and glad they're trained to help us if we need it. Besides the lifeguards, the calendar features water safety tips, history of the VBLS, and beautiful Virginia Beach scenery, some of the best.
The Sons of Summer calendar is a great souvenir to take home if you're visiting the area or a fun gift for local friends. You can buy your copy at the Old Coast Guard Station (they have a fab story time, btw) or online here.
Read more about VBLS here, and see more of George's work here. He was also on the news talking about the project last week. You did great, George!
