The King & Prince Resort Celebrates a True Hero!

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Lewis Colam is rowing to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.  The King and Prince hosted Lewis for a night of much needed rest from his voyage.

 

The King & Prince Resort Celebrates a True Hero!

 

We have spoken about the amazing King and Prince Resort in many articles over the past few months. We have spoken about the amazing members of their incredibly gifted staff. We have spoken about the luxury that each and every room provides. We‘ve presented you with the lasting images of the glorious scenery that involves flocks of nesting Sandhill Cranes and dolphins swimming in the surf as you walk along the shore of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. But there’s so much more to say…

 

It’s been 75 years that this amazing resort has been entertaining guests. Seventy-five years of hospitality that has been found to be second to none. Recently, however, King and Prince was able to honor a hero in the minds of many, and offered their incredible hospitality to a man who has taken on a seriously difficult challenge for the purpose of bringing much-needed funds and worldwide awareness to the issue of Alzheimer’s. His name is Lewis Colam, and by the time I’m finished telling you about him, you will want to jump ‘on board’ with his spectacular quest and root for him every step of the way!

 

On March 3rd, Lewis Colam set off from Miami in a fifteen-foot, open-decked row boat (which offers no coverage from the wind, rain and whatever else Mother Nature has in mind to throw at him. His mission is to sail 1400 miles along the East Coast in order to raise $20,000 dollars for the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. (www.ALZinfo.org).

 

The Fisher Center is comprised of internationally renowned scientists under the direction of Nobel laureate, Dr. Paul Greengard. If you do not yet know, Dr. Greengard has been at the forefront of seminal research that has provided the conceptual framework for all modern day investigations into Alzheimer’s disease. The Fisher Center, headquartered in New York City, works with other leading research institutions around the world. Dedicated to three main goals, the Fisher Center strives to understand the cause of Alzheimer’s; find a cure for the horrific disease; and improve the care of people who live with the disease, in order to enhance their quality of life – not to mention offering support for the families and caregivers who must watch the devastation of their loved ones.

 

Lewis Colam is one of millions who had to watch a person he cared very much for succumb to Alzheimer’s, and he truly wanted to do something to bring this disease into the headlines. He wanted to take on a mission that would bring people from across the globe to their computer’s and cell phones – creating a team that would work together to stop this illness in its tracks.

 

What people will be most surprised about is the fact that Lewis has no prior rowing experience. Like so many who are out there rowing, biking, and heralding their expeditions in the media, Lewis is accomplishing his feat with absolutely no support. What I mean by this is the fact that there are no vehicle’s or people following him to help him along the way, or to watch out for his safety; he is completely alone, with not even a motor or sail for support. To do something like this is amazing, but when you add in the fact that Lewis has no seafaring experience whatsoever, you – like me – will become immediately mind-boggled by the entire journey.

 

I was lucky enough to speak with Lewis on his boat this afternoon, and he is still in good spirits. In fact, he likes the ‘traveling’ part the best; he loves the scenery and exploring all those hidden areas that most of us have never even gotten the chance to see. One of those hidden areas is on St. Simons Island, where the King and Prince Resort has its immaculate home base. The marshes, the vivid colors of the flowers – a picture that only Monet could do justice to. Lewis was offered a stay at the King and Prince as he ‘sailed by’ on his mission, and Lewis told me that the short time he spent there was beyond memorable.

 

He spoke of how lovely the staff was and how incredible it felt to be treated to a room surrounded by beautiful pools, tennis courts, etc. He said it was extremely comforting, after being out in the elements, to have a taste of real luxury.

 

Before the sun sets tomorrow, assuming Mother Nature is supportive, Lewis will be halfway through with his 1400 mile journey along the East Coast of America. I can’t speak enough about how (I suppose it’s cynical to insert the word ‘surprised’ in this sentence) so, let’s just go with say emotional I became after speaking with him. This particular journey is occurring with no PR, no agent, no headlines, no ‘future book contract’ in the works if Lewis achieves his goal…nothing. This is simply a man who’s doing something completely unselfish. He‘s trying to shine a light on one of the most frightening diseases to behold; and not only for the precious soul that’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but also for the friends and family who must watch the decline with absolutely no way of helping the situation.

 

Lewis has also been most generous with his own website, adding some pretty fun and cool features that his followers and fans can use in order to feel as if they’re an actual part of his journey. Lewis has a real time GPS on his website that shows everyone exactly where he’s located at the moment. He ‘checks in’ every day, blogs, and leaves a short audio message to update listeners on all the trials, tribulations and blessings that have occurred during his trek. He even posts updates on Twitter and Facebook.

 

One of the most beautiful facets of his website is the photo album that Lewis has kept. From the pictures of people who have greeted Lewis at his stops to the images of the toll that the trip has taken thus far – fans and followers get an in-depth view of each and every day that Lewis braves the sea.

 

By welcoming this amazing man and providing the red-carpet treatment, the King and Prince Resort certainly honored a true hero that has taken on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons.

 

I am calling to all you generous and amazing readers out there to join with the King and Prince Resort - and the giving donors who have already been a part of this challenge! Help Lewis meet his goal, raise the money he desires, and join the fight to find a cure for Alzheimer’s once and for all!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.

Brunswick Georgia Christmas Parade

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

This past Saturday December 3, The King and Prince Resort was a participant in the annual Brunswick Christmas Parade.  The parade featured floats from local businesses, clubs, school groups, religious organizations and more. There was over 100 parade floats this year.  It was a great day to get in the Holiday spirit! The parade went from Howard Coffin Park up Gloucester St. and ended at Mary Ross Waterfront Park. Hundreds of families lined Gloucester to watch the parade.  The parade concluded with Santa Claus.  The King and Prince employees helped out to create the “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” float.  The employees with their families passed out candy to the parade viewers and had a great time walking with the float.  Our General Manager was the driver and we even had the Grinch with us!

Brunswick Stewbilee in Brunswick, Georgia

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

This past weekend, The King and Prince Resort competed in the annual Brunswick Rockin’ Stewbilee.  The event was on Saturday October 22 at the waterfront Mary Ross Park in Brusnwick Georgia (15 minutes from the Resort).  There were numerous festivities all day long.  The kick off was a one mile fun run and a 5K.  Following this was the “Pet Supplies Plus Pooch Parade.” Owners showed off their pets in a variety of creative costumes.  An employee of the King and Prince, Amanda’s pet won first place in the small dog category for being dressed as an Animal Cracker.  It was adorable! There was live entertainment all day and of course the main attraction, the brunswick stew contest!   There were 32 cooking teams that supplied their stew for the competition.  We served up over a thousand samplings to attendees.  It was our first time competing in the contest and are proud to say we were a finalist!  Our stew (and decorations) were definitely first place in our book!
