Parish Church of St. Helena offers summer camp 

“Veggie Fun World 2013” is a Christian summer program for children offered June 24-28 by the Parish Church of St. Helena, in downtown Beaufort. The second summer camp will be offered July 29-Aug. 2. Each program is distinct but related by the heroic super “Veggie Tales” characters used in crafts, songs, and activities. Praise music leader Michael McIntyre will lead our sing-along time. Children will enjoy outside games, water and sand tables, crafts, puppets, Bible stories, and Scripture verses. The daytime summer program runs from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. each day.

Each session has age-appropriate groups for children 18 months through 6 years of age. Each session costs $110 per child which includes all snacks and craft supplies. All children are welcome to come and share in hearing the good news about Jesus with Veggie friends and story tellers. For questions, contact Roz Dixon at 843-522-1712, ext. 220, or email her at nursery@islc.net. Register and pay online at www.sthelenas1712.org.

Community Dialogues” initiated by the Women’s Leadership Council of the United Way of the Lowcountry.  Mr. Pardue is nationally-recognized as a champion for the “forgotten” of our state — those without access to quality education, healthcare, and economic opportunity that many residents of the Lowcountry enjoy. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 5 from 4 until 6 p.m. on the USCB Bluffton campus. Please contact Lesley Holladay at the United Way to RSVP for this event: call 843-982-3040 or email lholladay@uwlowcountry.org.

Local author Garrity to sign copies of her book 

Author and photographer Janet Garrity will be signing copies of her book “Goin’ Down the River, Fish Camps of the Sea Islands” at the Farmer’s Market at Sea Pines Center, on Hilton Head, on Tuesday, June 4, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The book signing and the farmer’s market are sponsored by Lowcountry Produce.

“’Goin’ Down the River’ makes the perfect gift for Father’s Day. My book solves that ‘hard to find the right gift for Dad’ problem, so when Lowcountry Produce asked me to return for another market day,” said Garrity, “it was perfect timing.” For information about Garrity’s book signing, call Lowcountry Produce at 843-686-3003.
