The Jimmy Buffett-themed fundraiser was held at Port Royal Landing on Saturday, August 27. With music by Ban Jovi, the event benefitted Friends of Caroline Hospice. Hosted by Weezy and Troy Alcott, Lori and Roger Elliot, Lauren and Curtis Small, Jill and Bill Scheper, Kit and Louis Bruce and Casey and Charles Tumlin, the fundraiser was made possible by generous sponsors Butler Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep, Port Royal Marina and Palmetto Brewing. Thanks go to all the hardworking volunteers and people who bought tickets for this very worthy charity event. Here are some pics.
Local farmers markets head into fall with bumper crops
The Port Royal Farmers Market will be every Saturday 8:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. through November 26. Besides great vegetables and live plants (like Camellias to plant now for winter beauty), there is toe-tapping music, and wonderful food vendors. Come see where half the town goes on Saturday morning to meet and socialize! Also Beaufort Downtown Farmers Market continues until October 27 every Wednesday from 3 – 6 p.m. and Pick Pocket Plantation’s Farmers Market continues through September every Tuesday 2-7 p.m.
