Copyright Version 2.0 January 2015
We are entering our fourth year of production. Since our inception we determined it was abundantly clear that people want to see old photos and stories about Gerritsen Beach. We have done this without commercial support and it is our intention to continue providing you the memories you enjoy. 
Our only demand on our users is that they enjoy themselves while reading the stories and viewing the pictures.
Did out those old photos and send them in. We will be glad to add them to our library.

for their patience during the down time and a special thanks to all those who have sent compliments on the revised site. 
Please take note of one new feature below: "Upcoming Events".  If you are hosting a GB related event tell us and we will post it here. In that vein I am going to re-emphasize the Gerritsen Beach writing contest.
The entire purpose of the Writing Contest is to get stories about living in "The Beach" and stories about people from GB. I know my kids and grand kids can repeat stories I have told them over the years. 
The contest is free to enter and the rules are simple. Click below for rules and application.
If you are interested in making a small contribution ($5 or $10) to the prize money those directions are also below.
