 Boutique Dresses Tybee Island, GA

A-Line Waist

These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.

Empire Waist

Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.

Drop Waist

A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.

Shift Dresses in Tybee Island

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

For the Savannah Morning News

While steel is toughened up by tempering it in extreme heat, thousands of brave and adventurous people will strengthen their mind, body and soul by charging into the frigid Atlantic Ocean on New Year’s Day.

Tybee Island is helping families start the new year off right with its annual Polar Plunge on Jan. 1, 2024. Thousands of participants will gather at the Tybee Post Pier & Pavilion beginning at 9 a.m. to take part in this wild winter tradition.

The popular event kicks off with the return of the Gang of Goofs costume contest and parade. Groups of three or more will dress in their goofiest, funniest costumes and parade in front of a panel of “esteemed judges” for a chance to win fabulous cash prizes. The winning team will earn the prestigious Le Gang of Goofs trophy and the honor of displaying it in a location of their choice for the rest of the year. The trophy currently resides in the Tybee Island Inn, but who knows where its next home will be.

The Tybee Island Polar Plunge of 2012 was notable for making it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the “largest gathering of people wearing swim caps” when 2,049 of the 2,400 participants donned swim caps for the plunge. Unfortunately, the record was broken again in 2017, when the Ying Wa family of Hong Kong beat Tybee’s record with 2,584. Hopefully, Tybee Island can except that challenge and make a comeback someday.

This is the second year the Polar Plunge is organized by Tybee Island Main Street, an inclusive program through the City of Tybee Island that works to “improve the quality of life for those that live, work, and visit Tybee Island and enhance the cultural experience while preserving the community’s barrier island heritage.”

“Coming off of the pandemic years where they were doing it virtually, last year was the first time it was fully in-person again,” said Main Street Director Cassidi Kendrick of the Polar Plunge. “We had at least 800 participants, but it was definitely more than that. There were about 2,000 people out there with us, but we sold a little over 800 t-shirts, and we anticipate it to be and even bigger turnout this year.”

Registration is $35 and can be done online, or on the morning of the plunge on the pier. Each registrant receives a souvenir Tybee Island’s Polar Plunge 2024 long-sleeve t-shirt, but make sure to register as soon as possible to make sure you can get the size you want.

Proceeds from the Polar Plunge help Tybee Island Main Street improve the holiday festivities they organize for the city.

“We use it to make our holiday events, like our holiday market, tree lighting, and parade, an even bigger event,” said Kendrick.

Polar Bear Plunges are a popular tradition around the world with huge events in Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and around the Unites States. Tybee Island participants, however, will have it relatively easy. While plungers around the world may be trudging through snow in swimsuits before submerging themselves in icy water, Tybee Island can expect comparably pleasant 53-degree weather with water temperatures of around 55 degrees.

Don’t miss a chance for you and your family to start off the year strong by participating in this wet and exhilarating tradition.

Tybee Island, Ga. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is continuing his work to protect Tybee Island from sea level rise and coastal flooding.

Sen. Ossoff today announced a new $380,000 Federal grant to help protect residents and homes from flooding on Tybee Island. The Federal grant funding will be matched with $320,000 in local funds.

The Federal funding, through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)’s National Coastal Resilience Fund, will help the City design and permit a horizontal levee and living shoreline along 1,200 feet of marsh, replacing a culvert that is impeding water flow and causing erosion across the marsh, benefiting 185 acres of tidal salt marsh.

In 2019, Tybee Island securedThis is an external link a $125,000 Federal grant through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) for the initial design of these key projects, which was matched at the time with $175,000 in local funds.

Between 2016 and 2021, flooding events on Tybee Island increased by 30 percentThis is an external link, threatening the city and its residents.

“I express my gratitude to local leaders and advocates on Tybee Island for bringing local resources to bear to match Federal dollars and who have been such consistent advocates for Tybee Island, particularly when it comes to protecting Tybee Island from storms and flooding,” Sen. Ossoff said. “These funds will help build and maintain critical coastal infrastructure necessary to protect Tybee Island residents and businesses from storms.”

“The support provided by NFWF is critical to Tybee’s ability to improve our coastal community’s resilience, reducing the risk of rising seas and coastal flooding that we are experiencing, while also preserving the natural environment and wildlife habitat, which we hold so dear,” said Shirley Sessions, Mayor of Tybee Island.”

Sen. Ossoff continues to champion efforts to protect Coastal Georgia communities from the effects of sea-level rise and flooding.

In May, Sen. Ossoff delivered new resources through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to construct a new hurricane and tornado safe room on Tybee Island, providing a safe area for emergency personnel who must remain on the Island during hurricanes and other disaster situations.

Last year, Sen. Ossoff’s bipartisan legislationThis is an external link to protect Tybee Island from storm surge, beach erosion, and coastal flooding was signed into law. This law extended the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ authority to partner with Tybee Island for another 12 years.

Also last year, Sen. Ossoff delivered $5 million for Georgia Tech’s Coastal Equity and Resilience (CEAR) Hub to expand their network of low-cost water level sensors along the entire coast to collect vital and potentially life-saving data on sea-level rise.

For many, Tybee Island near Savannah is the go-to spot to spend a hot summer day on the beach. Every year, the long beachline attracts tourists from around the country to the sands.

However, there’s history sprinkled around the island that is now easier to find than ever before.

For the past few years, a team of researchers at Georgia Southern University has been collecting the stories and historic layout of the island. Specifically, landmarks from slavery and up to the Civil Rights Movement.

As a final product, the team launched a digital trail for visitors to follow; from the Lazaretto Creek quarantine station for enslaved people, to the Brown Cement Factory and other important sites on the island.

Georgia Southern’s Amy Potter, Ph.D., associate professor of geography, said the idea is for Tybee visitors as well as Savannah and Tybee residents to learn about this historically thriving population not often associated with the island, many of whom were also Gullah Geechee people.

“This is so important to our regional history,” said Potter. “We’re talking about those histories that were not that long ago. We were also thinking a bit more about what this community historically looked like and meant to the people who lived and worked here.”

The trail, which consists of 13 stops, features countless stories that bring these locations to life. Many of these stories were uncovered through personal interviews conducted by Potter and her then-student researcher Joyah Mitchell.

Before graduating in 2022 with a bachelor’s in geography, Mitchell helped Potter and the Tybee MLK Human Rights Organization interview descendants and build the trail map.

Mitchell said it was difficult to know when to stop the interviews, because there’s always more to learn about any given site. Additionally, she said there were hurdles in finding the next source of information.

“This project was supposed to be informed by African-American residents, but it was kind of hard to find those people,” said Mitchell. “Many of the former residents left during the recession because they couldn’t afford to stay there anymore. So we were finding a lot of non-Black perspectives, which is great, but we don’t want to whitewash the story that’s being told.”

It wasn’t just informational hurdles Mitchell had to overcome to put the pieces of this puzzle together. In order to find the information, there was a lot of cold-calling, door-knocking and asking questions on difficult topics.

“I’m extremely shy and reserved,” she said. “It’s something I’m having to warm up to, especially given the realm of the career field I’m going into. I can do it.”

The Ellenwood, Georgia, native credits her passion for this field and the topic at hand for helping her overcome this shyness. As a result, she helped build a map of societies from the past. Now, she’s looking to build maps for societies of the future.

Today, Mitchell is an intern for the city of Douglasville, Georgia. While she helps run the office before heading off to graduate school, she takes in whatever she can as she begins her life in city planning.

Parkinson’s Disease is the world’s fastest-growing neurological disorder and the second-most prevalent brain disease in the United States. Ninety percent of people with Parkinson’s are at risk of losing their ability to speak and swallowing complications are the main cause of death in this population.

The RiteCare Center for Communication Disorders at Georgia Southern University is teaming up with a Texas nonprofit clinic to help all Georgians with Parkinson’s Disease have access to high-quality speech treatment. Parkinson Voice Project, a clinic committed to helping people with Parkinson’s regain and retain their speech and swallowing, is awarding the RiteCare Center a grant worth more than $280,000 in training, services, supplies and equipment over five years.

Georgia Southern is one of 16 universities across the country selected this year to receive this grant as part of Parkinson Voice Project’s “Campaign to Reach America.” “We selected the RiteCare Center for Communication Disorders because of their compassion and their commitment to serving their Parkinson’s community,” says Elandary. “These new SPEAK OUT! Therapy & Research Centers will eliminate the barriers currently preventing thousands of people with Parkinson’s from receiving speech treatment,” she says. Speech and swallowing issues in Parkinson’s are life-altering and life-threatening. This is an urgent problem, and patients and families are desperate for help, according to Elandary.

The grant is part of the SPEAK OUT!® Therapy & Research Center. SPEAK OUT! is a highly effective, research-based speech therapy protocol that can also minimize the risk of life-threatening swallowing complications, according to Samantha Elandary, founder and CEO of Parkinson Voice Project.

“We believe fully in the remarkable outcomes of SPEAK OUT! Therapy due to research and our clinical experience. We have had countless patients whose lives have been positively impacted due to this program,” says Tori Caneda, clinic coordinator at the RiteCare Center, who serves as the clinical lead for the Georgia SPEAK OUT! Therapy & Research Center.

Through this collaboration, the Georgia Southern clinic will specialize in online treatment delivery and commit to providing SPEAK OUT! Therapy at no cost to any person in Georgia diagnosed with Parkinson’s or a related movement disorder. This will enable patients who are homebound, don’t drive, or who live in rural areas to now receive the speech therapy they need while eliminating insurance and financial barriers. The University will also conduct efficacy research on SPEAK OUT! Therapy.

Parkinson Voice Project is awarding more than $4.5 million in these collaborations.

Sparked by the Pandemic

Elandary credits the pandemic for sparking the concept of the SPEAK OUT! Therapy & Research Centers. “When we transitioned our speech therapy clinic to an online telepractice during the shutdown, we found our patients did better with that mode of therapy. Many barriers that previously prevented patients from receiving speech treatment were immediately eliminated. Patients who were homebound, lived in rural areas, or had transportation challenges could now receive treatment,” she says.

“Online therapy is easier and more convenient for this patient population that also struggles with mobility and physical challenges.” Elandary’s team observed that online therapy also made it easier for family members and friends from across the world to participate in therapy sessions by simply hopping onto a ZOOM call.

In March 2020, Elandary’s clinical team also began hosting “SPEAK OUT! Home Practice Sessions” on their website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel five days a week. More than 3,000 patients participate in these online sessions each day. With this added practice support, patients are improving and reaching their speech therapy goals faster than they did before the pandemic, she notes.

About the $20 Million Campaign to Reach America

In December 2021, Parkinson Voice Project officially launched its $20 million “Campaign to Reach America” to financially secure its headquarters in Richardson, Texas and help support 50 Therapy & Research Centers – one in every state across America. Parkinson Voice Project has raised over $11 million towards the campaign and plans to continue the campaign until all 50 states are sponsored. For more information on the Campaign to Reach America, please visit www.parkinsonvoiceproject.org/Campaign-To-Reach-America.

About SPEAK OUT!

Parkinson Voice Project’s comprehensive SPEAK OUT! Therapy Program combines interlocking components, including education for both the patient and family, individual speech therapy, a specialized workbook, weekly speech and singing group sessions, daily home practice, and re-evaluations every three-to-six months. People with Parkinson’s who adhere to the SPEAK OUT! protocol have been shown to maintain their treatment results for 12+ years and counting.

About Parkinson Voice Project

Parkinson Voice Project was established in 2005 and is dedicated to helping people with Parkinson’s regain and retain their speech and swallowing. They treat patients in their Texas clinic and train speech-language pathologists and graduate students worldwide. Their SPEAK OUT! Workbook is available in eight languages: English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Since 2008, the organization has not charged for their therapy services. Their program is primarily funded by charitable gifts and pay-it-forward donations from grateful patients and their families and friends. Parkinson Voice Project maintains a score of 100 on CharityNavigator.org. To learn more, visit www.ParkinsonVoiceProject.org

Ineligible voters on Tybee Island voter roll? State officials to review challenge

A group of concerned residents challenged the Tybee Island voter roll in a letter to the Georgia Secretary of State's Office two months after the November 2021 election.

A group of concerned residents challenged the Tybee Island voter roll in a letter to the Georgia Secretary of State's Office two months after the November 2021 election. Now, a hearing will be held at the State Election Board's regular meeting at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 19 in Atlanta after an investigation by the Secretary of State's Office into their concerns.

They alleged that the list of registered voters on the island was too large to be true and they believed that people who appeared to not live on Tybee full-time as their permanent residence were still voting in elections, a right many believe should be reserved for full-time residents only.

An investigation got underway by in March 2022, and while no such accusations have been raised again in the aftermath of the Nov. 7 election this year, the issue will finally have a resolution, at least for now.

The letter, which was signed by Mack Kitchens, who previously ran for mayor of Tybee, and, John McMasters, a former Chatham County commissioner, noted they had two main areas of concern: irregular voting on Nov. 2, 2021 and an excessively large voter list. They noted that information received through open records request suggested that Clerk of Council Jan Leviner may not have been carefully maintaining the voter list.

Voter registration list maintenance is the process election officals use to maintain accurate and up-to-date voter lists. Removing ineligible voters from that list is a job that city clerks happens at a local and state level, according to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.

The Chatham County Board of Registrars conducts a cleaning of the roll before municipal elections. A registered voter can submit challenges to the registrars at their monthly board meetings of other voters' eligibility to cast votes on election day.

Clerks and registrars can remove voters from the rolls for a number of reasons like dying, serving out a felony sentence, or not having had contact with election officials for around nine years.

Chatham County Board of Registrars Chairperson Colin McRae said in a letter to the City of Tybee Island at-large that "Ms. Leviner has shown great persistence and professionalism in her pursuit of ensuring an accurate voter roll for Tybee Island."

As recently as July 2023, the last time the registrars updated their meeting minutes, the city has been working to verify the city's voter roll, with six challenges to Tybee Island residents.

The residents, in the letter from the residents, supplied a list of 120 voters out of the 700 they audited (1,300 voted in that election) were "irregular" or people who did not live on the island but had just voted in the 2021 councilmembers. Brian West, who was just voted mayor, was among the three voted in that year.

In June 2022, after Leviner and Kenneth Williams — who no longer lives on the island — challenged the residency of some islanders, the Chatham County Board of Registrars ruled that a total of 27 registered voters on the island likely do not live there as their primary residence and would have to prove their residency when voting in future elections.

At the meeting, investigators will present findings of their investigation, and whether or not they believe a violation has occurred, however the board has sole discretion over whether or not there was a violation of state election law or State Election Board Rules.

If the board finds there was no violation, the complaint will be dismissed. Punishment for election crimes in Georgia are fines, jail time, or both by discretion of a trial court.

The meeting will be livestreamed on their website.
