Thank you to the Royal Pines residents who were generous in giving this year to Festival of Trees. Our donations of cookies, breads, craft items, gift baskets and jewelry, along with monetary donations and donating time, helped to stock the Gift and Gourmet shop whose sales benefit FRIENDS of Caroline Hospice.
On Saturday, December 8, the Royal Readers held their annual Christmas luncheon at Truffles in Bluffton.
Kathy Adams sent this: The Beaufort International Film Festival is scheduled February 13-17, 2013 at the USCB Center for the Arts. Volunteers are being recruited for ushering duties, ticket sales, food servers and bartending. If interested, please call the Beaufort film office, 522-3196 or Volunteer Coordinator Kathy Adams, 524-2657.
Several volunteers met at the film office Tuesday, Dec. 4, to discuss duties by film festival officials. Royal Pines residents pictured at left are Dick and Nancy Steeves, Maritza Schmidt, Maryann Cieplowski, Pat Davidyock, Kathy Adams and Marianne Hamilton.
Maryanne Bender held her yearly Christmas luncheon on Friday, December 7. All luncheon guests happily donated a “gift card” from a variety of places to benefit a Franciscan Center family’s Christmas.
Safe travels to those of you who are traveling for the holidays’ and Merry Christmas to all.
