To celebrate the heroes of La Jolla that keep the community's beaches safe, locals are giving back in a spirited way – by lighting up the lifeguard tower at Children’s Pool beach. Throughout the week until Dec. 14, volunteer lifeguards will decorate their lifeguard tower with twinkling lights, which can be donated by members of the community at Meanley & Son Ace Hardware, located at 7756 Girard Ave., or at the lifeguard tower itself, located on Coast Boulevard across from Casa de Manana.

The public is invited to the festive lighting ceremony, which will include carolers, coffee, cocoa and snacks on Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. The free community event will take place at Shell Beach just above the lifeguard tower.

Lifeguards are also collecting toys for Toys for Tots and are asking guests to bring a new, unwrapped toy for the cause. Toys can be donated at the lighting ceremony or at any lifeguard tower along San Diego’s coastline. For more information, contact Ed Harris at
