Couple receives lifetime community spirit award

Colonel Charles (Charlie) and Sarah Schreiner were recently selected by the Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association to receive the Community Service Award in recognition of their lifetime contribution to their country, county and community.

Col. Schreiner, with the support of Sarah and his family, completed a distinguished career in the Marine Corps and in 1978 they settled in their home on Lady’s Island.

Over the years they have performed numerous acts of kindness in support of their neighbors. Indicative of their community spirit is Sarah who, for 33 years, each week delivered meals to families in need as part of the Mobile Meals Program. Charlie’s contributions include serving as a member of the Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District Commission for 17 years, the Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association Community Preservation Committee for 15 years, and a past member of the Lady’s Island Business and Professional Association Board of Directors for seven years, and 10 years on the Beaufort Area Transportation Committee.

Both Charlie and Sarah, quietly and without fanfare, have given of their time and talent to make our community a better place to live, work and raise our families. The Community Spirit Award will be presented to them for their lifetime of service at the October LIBPA meeting. Also, a donation will be made by LIBPA in their name to the charity of their choice, which they have designated as the Mobile Meals Program.
