34TH ANNUAL OLD FORT JACKSON AUCTION & LOW COUNTRY BOIL
8/29   

OLD FORT JACKSON HOSTS THE 34TH ANNUAL AUCTION AND LOW COUNTRY BOIL, SATURDAY AUGUST 29TH FROM 6 TIL 10PM.  On Saturday, August 29th, 2015 from 6PM until 10PM, Old Fort Jackson will host its 34th Annual Silent Auction and Low Country Boil.
The fundraiser is open to the public and guests are welcome to explore Georgia’s oldest brick fort, enjoy the sunset along the Savannah River with delicious food, and take part in the silent auction. Artillery demonstrations and cannon firings will be given by costumed historic interpreters during the event, and all ages are welcome. For families and children, Savannah Children’s Museum will be on hand with special activities, such as fort construction with SCM's "big blue blocks", which will be as much fun to destroy with slingshots. Uniformed interpreters will provide artillery demonstrations, tours and musket drills, and kids can dress up as American Revolution, War of 1812, and Civil War soldiers. All proceeds go directly toward the preservation and operation of Fort Jackson. Admission is free, and food and beverages are sold separately ($12 per plate, cash bar). The silent auction will be full of great gift certificates from various restaurants and businesses, and unique items from local artists and boutiques, to help raise funds to support for Old Fort Jackson. Featured items for bid include 4 passes to 700 Drayton Cooking Class, one-night stay at the Brice  Hotel, $100 gift certificate to The Florence, beautiful necklace from FP Wortley Jeweler, gift certificates from several salons and spas, two Continental Round Trip Airline Tickets from Jet Blue, two tickets to Revival Fest, two VIP tickets for the Savannah Craft Brew Festival, a round of Golf for four at Savannah Quarters Golf Club, and much more! Coastal Heritage Society opened Fort Jackson to the public on Labor Day weekend 1976. Progress to restore the fort was made possible through fundraising projects such as dinner programs and educational school tours. Neither the State of Georgia nor the Federal government provided any financial support for this historic structure, and donations from community supporters has always played an integral role in preserving the fort. In 2000 Fort James Jackson was recognized and designated as a National Historic Landmark. It is now one of only eight remaining Second System coastal brick fortifications in the United States. Coastal Heritage Society continues its development and preservation efforts and the fort is operated as an interpretive historic site and allowing it to achieve its fullest potential. Through the interest of visitors and citizens of Savannah, Fort Jackson continues to be a part of the life of the community. The brick walls of the fort form a stage to present the history of the site and the community it once protected. With hard work and the support of the community,
the fort's ability to stimulate historic interest continues to increase steadily and Georgia's oldest standing brick fort plays a significant role in the story of Savannah and the State of Georgia.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box  30462, Savannah, GA 31410.
