Help Name-A-Trolley

Palmetto Breeze needs your help to NAME-A-TROLLEY! This year, there is a third Trolley joining the Palmetto Breeze. Their first two trolleys are “The Comet” (after Comet the Marsh Tacky horse at the Coastal Discovery Museum) and “The Alligator” named after Mr. Simmons’ freight boat named The Alligator!

Follow this link to post with your ideas. The suggestions can be animals that are important to our Lowcountry ecosystem, historically significant transportation icons, or anything else you think is worthy of being commemorated. The top suggestions will be included in a Facebook Poll in a few weeks, and the winning name will be announced in July along with several prize winners just for participating in the Poll
