All Aboard! Officials with the Town of Hilton Head Island, Palmetto Breeze and the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce, along with other supporters, celebrated the start of the new Breeze Trolley Service with a ribbon cutting and dedication July 16 at Shelter Cove Community Park. Riders can catch one of the Breeze trolleys on their daily routes from Shelter Cove Towne Centre to Coligny Beach Park and back. Trolley #1861 is named The Comet, after the Coastal Discovery Museum’s Marsh Tacky horse Comet, to reflect the role these rare breed animals played in transporting islanders in the early days of Hilton Head. Trolley #1862 is named The Alligator, as a tribute to island native Charlie Simmons Sr., aka Mr. Transportation, for his contribution to transportation before the bridge connected Hilton Head Island to the mainland. One of his freight boats was named the Alligator. Rides are free through the end of July. Starting in August, riders will pay $1 per trip. COURTESY TOWN OF HILTON HEAD ISLAND

Upon completion of the first lessons, sailors are allowed to get on the water and “single hand” a dinghy. Audi Hilton Head and the Boys & Girls Club Fund-a-Need program contributed scholarships for the camp so that more youngsters could experience being on the water. COURTESY AUDI HILTON HEAD
