Fred and Aysel Dyer led another huge volunteer effort to deliver a successful Plantation Tour hospitality event at Belle Isle. Over 20 residents provided complimentary baked goods for around 400 guests visiting the Yacht Club on Friday to learn about Belle Isle as a former plantation site and its role during the Revolutionary War, to stroll Battery White's earthen berms and see cannons protecting Winyah Bay during the Civil War, and to view the artifacts featured in the mini-museum. Our stop on the tour is a favorite for those reasons, of course, and also because we offer the Yacht Club as a place to sit and eat a bag lunch or just to rest for a few minutes and enjoy our precious view. Sale of beverages provided over $200 as a donation to the tour sponsor, Prince George Winyah Episcopal Church.
An earlier email from the Dyers listed those who provided baked goods and welcomed guests at the Yacht Club. The volunteer spirit is strong at Belle Isle! Thanks to all who contribute in so many ways to make our community a special place to spend our time.
