Come support the guards at the annual Galveston Island Beach Patrol Barbecue Fundraiser from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. June 20 at the Press Box at 24th and Postoffice streets — music, surf movie, silent auction, good food and all kinds of fun.

Tickets are $15, and you can get them from any guard, Beach Patrol headquarters, the Park Board of Trustees and the Press Box. Or call and we can bring the tickets to you.

Donations are tax deductible, and checks can be made out to Galveston Lifeguarding Inc. Proceeds go for junior guard and guard competition, equipment, lifeguard scholarships, lifeguard exchange programs, etc.

Hope to see you there.

Peter Davis is the Galveston Island Beach Patrol Chief.
