The annual redecoration of the Beach 117 Street Lifeguard Shack took place on the afternoon before the “Night Out Against Crime.” Geoff Rawling coordinated the painting for kids of all ages. The Rockaway Artist Alliance provided the paints, brushes, pans and ladders; West End Realty supplied the sun visors; The Beach Club supplied ice-cold lemonade and Rockaway provided the talent. Local parents brought their children and visiting beachgoers joined in.
