President, First Responders
  • Congratulations to Anne Lyon for receiving the Skidaway Island First Responder of the Year Award for 2022.
  • Anne has been a Skidaway Island First Responder for 20 years. A short article can’t adequately express her contribution to our group and this island. Suffice it to say, she has volunteered more hours of her time looking out for all of us than I can calculate. Thank you, Anne, for your years of service and setting the bar so high for the rest of us.
  • I also thank Robin Rackoff for her dedication and commitment to the Skidaway Island First Responders. Robin made it her mission years ago to raise money within the Mah Jongg community for our organization. Even in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic when the tournament wasn’t held, she continued to raise money on our behalf.

  • With the holiday season upon us, many parents are planning to give fun, playful gifts like trampolines, playhouses, climbing gyms, basketball hoops, and tree swings.
  • Recreational play structures are a great way to let kids be kids and burn off excess energy!
