I am so thrilled for our little "townies." The 2013 Leadership Class of the Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce has chosen to fashion a play area at Dubois Park. The park will soon have a beautiful shrimp boat structure for children to play on.
What a wonderful addition to an already nice area.
The park will feature a collection of pavers with children's handprints. The pavers will be sold as a funding source for the park. Families will be able to purchase one with their own children's hands imprinted in them.
Great fun and a great idea.

It would also be nice to have swings that babies can safely sit in. Lori and Jamie's daughter, Patterson, will probably be first in line to play on the boat. I look forward to watching the construction. I guess our mayor will have to break a bottle of milk over the the bow of the boat.
The closest play areas now in Old Town are at the corner of Calhoun and Lawrence streets and at Michael C. Riley Elementary School.
Thank you in advance to the chamber. Our family will surely be buying pavers.

The festival generates money for many area charities and is lots of fun.
At our house, we had a crowd coming and going and feasted on roast pork, collards, hopping John and lots of champagne.
Now I have to get used to writing "2013" -- it will take a while.
If you have never been out to Palmetto Bluff, you will see what they mean. It is a lovely place to relax on the weekend. There are several spots to get a bite to eat or just take walk around. We should be proud to have them as our neighbor, I am.
