The Royal Pines Garden Club met May 11 for its annual luncheon held at the Lady’s Island Country Club. Following the luncheon, members gathered at the Quilt Garden, located near the entrance of Royal Pines Boulevard for the unveiling of a sign that reads, “DEDICATED TO OUR FOUNDING MEMBERS ROYAL PINES GARDEN CLUB EST.1990.” The quilt garden was designed and installed by garden club members Joey Patrucco and Nancy Steeves with much needed help from their spouses in 2010 and has been maintained by Royal Pines Garden Club members. The garden quilt has been refreshed with annuals in soft colors of pinks, purples and yellows. Charter members that attended the dedication are Bunny Spiers and Ellen Richards. The garden club has scheduled a field trip for June 9 to the Day Lily Farm on St. Helena’s Island to be followed by a brown bag luncheon.

Pat and Joe Davidyock of Wade Hampton celebrated the birth of twin grandsons this week. Their daughter Jill and her husband, Steve, of Pennsylvania are the proud parents.  The boys are identical twins born on May 17th.  They will not only share their birthday with each other but with their big sister Nina who turned 4 on May 17 as well.  The boys’ names are Colin and Patrick; they are doing well under the watchful eye of Grandma Pat.

Save the date: Friends of Caroline Hospice is planning a “Christmas in July” for Saturday July 30 at Coosaw.  There will be entertainment for the entire family to enjoy.  A schedule of events and other details will follow.

With Father’s Day approaching- what better gift to give than a round of golf at Lady’s Island Country Club. To purchase a gift certificate, call 524-3635. Give them a try: “The course is in magnificent condition”.

It’s going to be a girl for Jessica and Michael Haught, daughter and son of Maritza and Fred Schmidt and Marcy and Bill Haught (both Royal Pines families).  There will be lots of travel to and from Chicago in September!
