Big Thank You To Joanna and Larry Pomason!!

Bikes Donated to River Lifeguards

Earlier this  summer, lifeguards were surprised to find a super cool gift from Highlands' residents Joanna and Larry Pomason. The Pomason's  purchased and then donated two heavy duty  beach cruisers specifically  for our lifeguards to utilize for our river lifesaving operations and general tasks.  We cannot thank Joanna and Larry  enough for this quiet act of generosity. The Pomason's donated these bikes to "make the lifeguards day a little easier." Sea Bright's river lifeguards appreciate this donation and will use these bikes for many many years to come. 



The primary mission of Sea Bright Ocean Rescue is to protect the public and prevent drowning by providing a nationally accredited beach safety program utilizing exemplary modern lifeguarding techniques and water rescue procedures.
