Cheers to New Benches!

Jean Greenlaw and Peter Sneath are drinking a toast to new benches purchased by Regime I for the shady area shared by Mayrant Bluff and Canvasback Cove residents. Lonnie Jones surprised residents with the new benches as part of the Maintenance / Rejuvenation project in Regime I. The new wood benches rest on pavers to prolong their life and are beautiful and comfortable.

While the following is an Irish proverb and toast (instead of an English one), in honor of the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show this month we think this verse says a lot about friendships we see at Belle Isle.

There are good ships, and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be.

Support the Georgetown Wooden Boat Show (October 20-22) by attending events Friday night (ticketed), and exhibits and shows Saturday and Sunday (free admission). This event is a highlight of the year in Georgetown, and is recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the Top 20 Events to attend in 2017. Friday night's "Goat Island Yacht Club Regatta" benefits Georgetown's South Carolina Maritime Museum. Our very own Mac McAlister is Museum Director, and he and Mary have worked tirelessly year after year to bring this premier museum to its present location in the heart of downtown Georgetown, with the highest quality exhibits and support of maritime education for youth.
