Habersham Marketplace to host First Fridays starting in September

in Arts by

The Habersham Marketplace in Beaufort, SC, will host its monthly First Friday Event, September 6, 2013, featuring live DJ William White. Please join us to celebrate the beginning of the school year! September’s theme, “Rock the Block Back 2 School Rally”, encourages visitors to bring school supply donations that are provided to area students in financial need.

Bring your donations the day of the event or deposit them in a box located in the Habersham Post Office starting September 1st.

Habersham Marketplace is very excited to introduce Dr. Jeffrey Moss, the new Superintendent of Schools, as well as Geri Kinton, a member of the Board of Education and a Habersham resident. In addition, the Shanklin choir will perform and attendees will be able to view students’ artwork.  A picnic table, painted by the students to be used in Shanklin’s courtyard, will be on display. This is part of the first phase of a beautification plan for the courtyard being worked on by a group of Habersham residents, “Friends of Shanklin.”  They have been working closely with Celeste Lavan, principal, to identify ways to assist the staff and students in the upcoming year.

If interested in joining “Friends of Shanklin,” please contact Cindy Collins at cincollins@gmail.com or 843-379-3844.  Donations to the Beautification of Shanklin’s Courtyard and other projects will gratefully be accepted. There will also be sign-up for future volunteer opportunities during the event.

Come welcome our new Superintendent of Schools, greet and support the students of Shanklin School, and volunteer!
