A JBLC lifeguard bracelet was found in the sand at RM5, the date on it is 1958, and it belonged to Dan Konz. The person who found it is seeking any information on Dan. Can you help?

Looks like we got a response.........

He lives in Illinois and has contacted us and should be reunited with his bracelet shortly.

Thanks to all who helped track down alumni lifeguard Dan Konz... Jim Rooney, John McCarthy, Jean Peters, Steve Rosenbluth, The Bear, etc......

I am arranging for the lifeguard bracelet to be returned to Dan after many, many years after the original loss. I will try to find out the details of how and when it was lost.

WPIX channel 11 plays the story and John Hanc writes it up in the tuesday August 31, 2010 issue of Newsday.

Lynn Brown is located as the dealer of these lifeguard bracelets since 1969.

Our own Peter Vannucci was the provider of the bracelets in the 1950's and early 1960's.

Any Jones Beach alumni out there looking to get in touch contact us at the e-mail address <alumni@jblc.net>
