We need your help!

The Carver Center in Jacksonville Beach contacted us asking for help. They need 30 backpacks filled with supplies by Friday to get their kids ready for school!

The ALR will be delivering these backpacks Friday evening. If you can help by dropping off any supplies so that we can stuff these packs it would be much appreciated!

Supplies requested include crayons, washable markers, scissors, glue sticks, Kleenex, pencils, pink erasers, notebooks, zip lock bags, folders, antibacterial wipes, pens, 3 ring binder, and more. 

If you are unable to help this week no worries. We will be collecting supplies all month long! We are trying to help Carver Center fill a need and do appreciate any help you can give this week.

Attention all ALR Members... 

We will have 30 back packs filled and ready by Friday to deliver to Calver Center.  What we need is all the bikes we can muster at the Post this Friday the 8th no later than 5:30pm.  The goal is to have 30 bikes deliver and hand out the back packs to the Carver Center about 5 min away from the Post.  The teachers have been notified and will be ready for us and the kiddos are beyond excited!!!  We know this is late notice but there was no other way to do it before school starts. This will do so much to help the parents and kids get ready for school.  It should be only about 40 min of your time and will do so much for our local kids.
We are considering putting together a group deep sea fishing trip in the fall but we need to be sure we have enough people interested to rent out the full boat.

The cost will be approximately $100 per person and includes transportation from the Post as well as the deep sea fishing excursion.

From what I understand while on the boat the deck hands take care of everything for you as far as baiting your lines and taking care of the fish. They will even clean the fish for you when back at port.

If this is something you are interested in please sign up at the Post.
